3. The Trayvon Martin Saga

For nearly two months, African-Americans pulled out their hoodies and rallied in Florida and throughout the country to demand justice for an unarmed 17-year-old named Trayvon Martin who was gunned down by an overzealous neighborhood watch volunteer. After weeks of protest, George Zimmerman was finally arrested and charged.
