In 2012, at the age of 17, Trayvon Martin died during a violent confrontation in Florida. The publicity surrounding his death and the ensuing trial catapulted the country into a national debate. Since then, Sybrina Fulton has co-authored a book about her son and become a spokesperson for turning family tragedy into social change. Fulton will speak at OSU in Corvallis as part of the university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The presentation will be live streamed to OSU-Cascades at an event open to the public.
