JAY-Zs six-part docuseries about the tragic death of Trayvon Martin premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in March and now the extended trailer is finally here.

The six-part docu-series, premiering July 30th, is inspired by the book Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, written by Trayvon’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.

JAY has long since been a supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, often showing up to support peace rallies and anonymously donating money to the families.

In 2017 he brought us the story of Kalief Browder, the Bronx teenager was arrested at the age of 16 for allegedly stealing a backpack and thrown in Riker’s Island for three years without a conviction simply because he couldn’t afford the $3500 bail. And after months in solitary confinement, while serving time without a trial, Browder committed suicide by hanging himself. He was 22.
