LA's Trayvon Martin Protest Photos Will Move You

Parents of all races took to the streets in Los Angeles, Calif., over the weekend to protest the not guilty verdict handed to George Zimmerman.

But for the mothers and fathers of African American boys, the case hit especially close to home. Captured in photos by Getty photographer Robyn Beck, African American moms made protest signs about their own children, calling attention to what one columnist called an "open season on black boys."
