The intensely moving story of a lost child, a tragic death, and the dramatic birth of a historic movement, told through riveting alternating narratives.

When Trayvon Martin took his last walk down a Florida street on a cool February night in 2012, he was just another American teenager, heading home with candy and a soda, while talking on the phone with a friend. By the end of the night he was dead—gunned down by a neighborhood watchman. Within weeks his name would be on the lips of a President and a movement for justice would spread across the country. His name is embedded into the fabric of our cutlure and his iconic photo, a boy in a hoodie, gazing at the camera, has been seen all over the world. But who was Trayvon Martin before he became, in death, an icon? And how did one black child’s death in a small Florida suburb become the match that lit a movement?

Rest In Power, told through the alternating narratives of his parents, answers those questions from the most intimate sources. The book takes us beyond the news cycle, controversies, and familiar images to give their deeper account: The story of the beautiful and complex child they lost, the grief and confusion that followed, the cruel unresponsiveness of the police and the hostility of the legal system, and how these two humble, hardworking parents, powered by love for their lost son, made his life matter, even in death.

“A reminder—not only of Trayvon’s life and death but of the vulnerability of black lives in a country that still needs to be reminded they matter.”USA Today

“A beautiful, searing account.”The Washington Post

“A brave, heart-rending narrative from the parents who lost their son far too soon.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“[A] gripping portrayal.”Library Journal (starred review)

“Not since Emmitt Till has a parent’s love for a murdered child moved the nation to search its soul about racial injustice and inequality. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin’s extraordinary witness, indomitable spirit and unwavering demand for change have altered the dynamics of racial justice discourse in this country. This powerful book illuminates the witness, the grief, and the commitment to reform that Trayvon Martin’s death has mobilized; it is a story fueled by a demand for justice but rooted in love.”—Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy

“As the fifth anniversary of this tragic crime nears, Fulton and Martin share a remarkably candid and deeply affecting in-the-moment chronicle of the explosive aftermath of the murder. Writing in alternate chapters, they share every detail of their shock, grief, and grueling quest for justice. . . . Given the unconscionable shooting deaths of young black men, many by police, that followed Trayvon’s, this galvanizing testimony from parents who channeled their sorrow into action offers a deeply humanizing perspective on the crisis propelling a national movement.”Booklist (starred review)
