(FROM DAYTON DAILY NEWS) Central State University community members gathered Monday
evening to peacefully march and pray in support of Trayvon Martin’s family.
About 100 people gathered at about 7 p.m. on campus and walked to the Wilberforce Carnegie
Library, where they gathered to “pray for peace as the nation deals with the acquittal of
George Zimmerman,” according to a statement from the university.
On Saturday night, Zimmerman, a Latino, was found not guilty in the 2012 shooting death of
Martin, 17, who is black. The Sanford, Fla., case gained national attention after Zimmerman
was not originally charged in the incident.
The march and vigil were the work of CSU student Lamarr Cole, who said he supports the
jury’s verdict but not its reasoning.
