"Trayvon Martin: 10 Years Later" Will Feature Interviews with His Parents, His Family Attorney, Government Officials, Athletes, Thought Leaders and Activists

CBS News' Gayle King will anchor TRAYVON MARTIN: 10 YEARS LATER, a one-hour special exploring how the senseless shooting of a Florida teenager a decade ago still reverberates in America today. The CBS News Streaming Network and the Smithsonian Channel(TM) will present the special Saturday, Feb. 26 at 8:00 PM, ET. BET will air the special Monday, Feb. 28 at 8:00 PM, ET, and afterward it will stream on Paramount+.

In addition to anchoring the special, King will sit down for new and emotional interviews with Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Breonna Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, as well as women from Mothers of the Movement, a group founded by Fulton for mothers whose children have been killed by police or gun violence. The hour will draw from King and CBS News' extensive reporting on the shooting and the aftermath of the incident that left Martin dead, and will tackle the tough issues of race and the killings of young Black men in America by senseless violence.

"The tragic killing of Trayvon Martin 10 years ago was a watershed moment that set the stage for the modern social justice movement," said Alvin Patrick, executive producer of the CBS News Race and Culture Unit and TRAYVON MARTIN: 10 YEARS LATER. "This special reflects on how one teenager's death still resonates today and connects the dots of activism from 2012 to 2022."

Produced by the CBS News Race and Culture Unit, TRAYVON MARTIN: 10 YEARS LATER features the work of CBS News senior national correspondent Mark Strassmann, who reported the first national story on Trayvon Martin's death by neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder; he was acquitted in July 2013. Strassmann talks with Tracy Martin, Martin's father, and Ben Crump, who was a little-known attorney at the time, about why he wanted to take up the case and ensure the nation knew Martin's name. CBS News special correspondent James Brown explores how Martin's death prompted professional athletes to speak out in solidarity with the Martin family and jumpstart a new wave of activism. And CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan reports how Zimmerman's acquittal set the stage for the modern Black Lives Matter movement and many of the protests that have followed over the last decade.

The special also includes new interviews with former attorney general Eric Holder and former White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, who were part of the Obama administration at the time of the shooting. Voices of those on the front lines of social justice are included in the special, including activists Carmen Perez and Phillip Agnew. Additionally, CBS News spoke with thought leaders such as Michael Eric Dyson; GRAMMY-nominated recording artist Fat Joe; NBA superstar Chris Paul; and sportswriter Dave Zirin.

TRAYVON MARTIN: 10 YEARS LATER is the start of a new iteration of CBS REPORTS, the storied CBS News documentary franchise that began at the Network more than 60 years ago. Featuring deep reporting on national and global issues, CBS REPORTS is one of the new, original programming offerings featured on the CBS News Streaming Network. Nancy Lane is the senior executive producer of CBS REPORTS and the senior vice president of programming and development for CBS News Streaming.
