Trayvon Martin’s mom represents all the women who have stepped in and organized for the #BlackLivesMatter protests, from Ferguson to both coasts. This is becoming a new wave of the Civil Rights Movement. In a letter to Mike Brown’s mother and family this summer, Fulton wrote, “If they refuse to hear us, we will make them feel us. Some will mistake that last statement as being negatively provocative. But feeling us means feeling our pain; imagining our plight as parents of slain children. We will no longer be ignored.”
