Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, will return to Howard University School of Law on Monday, September 23, two months after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of the second-degree murder of her son.

Fulton will be accompanied by her son Jahvaris and her attorney Benjamin Crump. They will discuss the trial and their efforts to repeal Stand Your Ground Laws across America. Howard Law Professor Lenese Herbert will also participate in the program.

Howard Law School Okianer Christian Dark said in a statement published on July 15, 2013, that the family would be invited back to the law school. “We are thrilled that they could fit into our academic schedule this fall,” said Dean Dark.

The program will begin at 12:15pm in the Moot Court Room.
Howard University School of Law
2900 Van Ness Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20008

The program is sponsored by the Office of the Dean and the Criminal Law Society of the School of Law.

Seating is on a first-come first-served basis.
