Dwyane Wade and Kids Pose in Hoodies in Ebony Magazine to Honor Trayvon Martin

Ethan Grant@DowntownEGAnalyst IAugust 7, 2013

Ebony magazine is the latest publication to feature prominent figures taking a stand for Trayvon Martin. 

NBA star Dwyane Wade and his two sons, Zaire and Zion, were featured on one of the four covers that Ebony has planned for its September issue. Movie director Spike Lee, actor Boris Kodjoe and Martin's family make up the corresponding covers. 

The publication released photos of the covers on Facebook Tuesday. 

Wade posted a picture of the cover on Instagram, complete with his sons donning hoodies with the saying, "We are Trayvon."

George Zimmerman, the man who stood trial for Martin's murder, was acquitted by a Florida jury earlier this year. Public reaction to that verdict has been mixed, to say the least, and celebrities like Wade have not been shy about responding to what they feel is an injustice. 

The magazine cover appearance is not the first time Wade has spoken out about Martin.  

The Miami Heat were one of the first professional sports franchises to address Martin's death. LeBron James posted a photo of the Heat wearing hoodies on Twitter, and Wade and James both wrote messages on their sneakers in a 2012 game. 

Wade's latest gesture is small in the grand scheme of things but speaks volumes about his stance on the issue.
