Hip-Hop Response to Trayvon Martin Verdict

Obviously, there have been a wide range of responses to last weeks' not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. As I write, protesters in Washington, DC and other cities have come out yet again to register their discontent and plan the next steps toward addressing the complexities of race and criminal justice in the U.S.

Here is a new video from politically active rappers Yasiin Bay/Mos Def (who also recently subjected him self to force feeding to illustrate the plight of hunger striking prisoners at Guantanamo Bay), M-1 and Stic Man of dead prez, and Mikeflo. For my money, it's some very powerful and provocative stuff.

Folks interested in the intersection of hip-hop and criminal justice activism should also check out Craig Engstrom and Derrick Williams's contribution to the new PCARE book Working for Justice: A Handbook of Prison Communication and Activism.
