The Miami Herald reports that the Miami-Dade commissioners “approved adding Martin’s name to the part of Northeast 16th Avenue that leads to Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High, where Martin was in 11th grade.”
The road will be called “Trayvon Martin Avenue,” and is expected to go into effect this week.
Martin’s death sparked the Black Lives Matter movement after being racially profiled by George Zimmerman. The tragedy influenced his mother Sybrina Fulton to go into politics and also created national outrage after Zimmerman was acquitted after claiming self-defense.
