It’s now been a little over a week since George Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting killing of Trayvon Martin, but the reactions have not stopped and the protests have not stopped either.

While there were thousands of protests and vigils held nationwide, Memphis was one of the cities that responded with vigils demanding justice for Trayvon Martin as well.

One of those vigils were held at the National Civil Rights Museum in downtown Memphis, Tn this past Saturday were dozens of people showed up to ask for justice for Trayvon Martin.

There were also other vigils and gatherings going on in the city, one involving rapper and father of two, Kevin ‘K.L.’ Locke, who helped organize this past Friday’s Just Us Peace Rally downtown.

In a post to his Twitter, rapper KL can be seen at Trayvon Marton’s vigil in Memphis holding a picture of the 17 year old teen who died the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, after being shot by self appointed ‘watchmen’ George Zimmerman.

Members of the Memphis rap community and others in Memphis join in the nationwide fight for justice for Trayvon Martin including the likes of artists such as Twista, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz and others.

Just this past weekend, hip hop couple Jay-Z and wife Beyonce showed their support when they attended a rally honoring Trayvon Martin in New York on Saturday, along with Al Sharpton and others.

Meanwhile, the reaction most memorable of all may likely be that of Trayvon Martin’s mother Tracy Martin.
