Trayvon Martin, a name that’s been heard, chanted, written about, tweeted and posted over 2 million times in the past weeks. Martin, who was visiting a gated community in Sanford, Fla., was shot and killed Feb. 26 by George Zimmerman on his way back from 7/11. Since then, the shooting has caused an uproar around the nation. SNN recently got the opportunity to speak with Trayvon’s stepmother, Alicia Martin, who raised him for 15 years.
