On February 26, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in Florida. Now -- 46 days, several marches, and more than 2 million signatures later -- George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the case. After receiving death threats and fearing for his safety, he took to hiding and some reports say he had left the state.

It was a peaceful, breezy spring day in Brooklyn, New York in 1994. It wasn’t cold enough for a coat, yet it was perfect for a light hooded sweater. I wore a tan Timberland hoodie over my Catholic school uniform to disguise my preppy getup. This day I took the long way home; I wanted extra time to listen to A Tribe Called Quest’s latest album, Midnight Marauders, on my portable Walkman (Yes! Cassettes!). I put on my hoodie, popped on my headphones and let Q-Tip and Phife dole out ear candy.
