Writer’s Digest Review

State of Florida v. Trayvon Martin:

A Murder Cover-Up & Obtaining Justice

by

Gina McGill

 

The book tackles a prevalent, dangerous topic: institutional racism. The author clearly states that racism is the heart of the story of Trayvon Martin’s murder and George Zimmerman’s acquittal. Public interest in the case, and the prevalence of similar stories make this book a timely part of the discussion. The author’s rage is understandable and yet is controlled and directed at solutions. The author’s approach … will equip those who agree with logic and reasoning, and it will encourage those who are unsure to see the racial undercurrents of American culture. The book includes numerous list, statistics, charts, conversations, legislation, and other elements that establish the claims, and modulate the pace of the book. The chapter “Where Do We Go from Here” is practical and combats the frustration and despair that come from facing the facts presented earlier in the book. The subtitle tells the author’s point of view up front … The table in the back matter presents evidence and concisely details the arguments of the book, making it easy to share the author’s insights with others.
