The Rev. Al Sharpton heads to Florida Thursday to join the growing crowd protesting the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
Sharpton, the outspoken activist and television personality, said he will hold a rally Thursday night in a church in Sanford, the city in the crosshairs of this national controversy.
Martin was fatally shot February 26 while walking to the house of his father's fiancee in Sanford after a trip to a convenience store. George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader, said he shot the teen in self-defense.
Zimmerman has not been arrested. A police report describes him as a white male; his family says he is Hispanic.FULL STORY
