Watch Jay Z Give a Powerful Speech About Trayvon Martin 's Legacy. This weekend, Jay Z joined hundreds of marchers for the sixth annual Peace Walk & Peace Talk rally—a Central Florida event that honors the memory of Trayvon Martin as well as other victims of gun violence.

JAY-Z gave an emotional speech at an event held in memory of Trayvon Martin on Saturday (10Feb18).

The unarmed 17-year-old was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida in 2012. Zimmerman was charged with murder, but acquitted at trial on self-defence grounds due to Florida's controversial stand-your-ground law.

To honour the slain teenager and other victims of gun violence, Jay, real name Shawn Carter, joined hundreds of marchers in Miami at the sixth annual Peace Walk & Peace Talk on Saturday, which was organised by officials at The Trayvon Martin Foundation.

"We want to make sure that we stand and support and never forget that Trayvon serves as a beacon of light to the people out here. So, you guys will never have to go through the pain and hurt that these guys (Trayvon's parents) went through," the 48-year-old said. "And his name will sit alongside the greats whom lost their lives to push our culture forward - the Martin Luther Kings, the Gandhis. That's the intention that we set, that his name serves as a beacon of light and hope to push us in a better direction, so thank you guys for your support. Thank you for being here."

Jay's appearance at Peace Walk & Peace Talk had not been publicised beforehand.

Last year (17), the Empire State of Mind hitmaker confirmed that he was producing a six-part TV series about Trayvon's life and death.

The program will be based on two books; Lisa Bloom's Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It as well as Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, which was written by Trayvon's parents.
