(MYFOXDC) — TEMPLE HILLS, Md. – A number of churches nationwide declared today ‘Hoodie Sunday’ in honor of Trayvon Martin. Reverend Tony Lee of the Community of Hope A.M.E. Church in Temple Hills, Maryland delivered his sermon in a hooded sweatshirt.
While the six women of the jury in Florida said George Zimmerman was acting in self-defense when he shot Martin, many in Lee’s congregation are not convinced. There is outrage and disappointment among many members of the black community.
Lee said, “I don’t want this kind of stuff to happen to another one of our children.”
