Katie Yamasaki did this mural on a building at Gratiot & I-94 on the eastside of Detroit in 2013. Trayvon's image, with one of Dr. King's more powerful quotes is both heart-warming and tragic, given Trayvon's fate.

The ability of Ms. Yamasaki to capture those two feelings, heart-warming and sorrow, in one image, is unique.

Dr. King's full quote:

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ~ Dr. King, Letter from the Birmingham Jail
