The message of the mural, created by Miami artist Huong, is “We are all Trayvon Martin.”

The mural shows a man who looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who shot and killed Martin in February 2012 and was later acquitted in the teen’s death, shooting a person wearing a hoodie.  There’s a mirror in the mural where Martin’s face would be so visitors can see themselves as the teen.

The mural also contains blank spaces where the public can share their thoughts, and  it also shows a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. with blood flowing down his head.

Huong also joined the Dream Defenders, a group holding a sit-in protest outside Gov. Rick Scott’s office for the past four weeks.  The group plans on taking the artwork on a nationwide tour, although the exact locations are  not yet known.

    Amazing… It’s important for people really see that we really are all Trayvon Martin. Some really don’t notice true reality until they see it staring back at them in the mirror.
