A historically black college plans to award Trayvon Martin a posthumous degree later in May, the school announced Wednesday.
Florida Memorial University will present a bachelor’s of aeronautical science May 13 to Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
Trayvon Martin died in 2012 after neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot him during an altercation.
The award serves to honor Martin’s memory and pay homage to the work his parents do for social justice, the school said.
