There were approximately 100 FAMU students in attendance at the march in Sanford. Students were joined by civil rights activists Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton. Thousands of protesters marched into Sanford to rally for justice, led by the family of Trayvon Martin.

“I know I cannot bring my baby back, but I’m sure going to [try to] make changes to make sure this doesn’t happen to another family,” said Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, according to WBPF, a ABC News affiliate in South Florida.

Kendra Neal, a public relations student at FAMU graduating this semester, was a part of the march in Sanford yesterday. Neal is. Neal, from Kansas City, Mo., has been one of the leaders in the “Justice for Trayvon” initiative. She said that she was happy that FAMU students had the opportunity to participate in the march and stand alongside the Martin family in their fight.

“I hope this experience is something all students who participated can hold dear and look back on as their contribution to the world and civil rights,” said Neal.

In addition to Monday’s Sanford expedition, FAMU students also staged a march to the State Capitol Building. Students marched from the “FAMU Set,” the epicenter of the campus, to the Capitol. They received praise from some as well as heckling from others on their march to the capitol. Roughly 200 people gathered at the footsteps of the Capitol building.

The group stayed at the capitol for hours, calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman and clarification of the “Stand Your Ground Law, the self-defense statute in Florida that allows residents to use deadly force as long as they have reasonable belief of a threat.

FAMU students along with students from FSU and TCC held a candlelight vigil last night. A small group gathered in front of the eternal flame, a monument in the middle of campus.
