Watch Tracy Martin, the father of Trayvon Martin, appear at the Congressional Black Caucus’ hearing on “Black Men on Boys.” He joined Georgetown University sociology professor and radio host Michael Eric Dyson, former Congressional Black Caucus Chair and former NAACP president Kweisi Mfume, and David Johns, the Executive Director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans, to “discuss the challenges and opportunities black men and boys face at every stage of life.”
