Rally for Justice for Trayvon Martin, Detroit, MI.
The lady with the yellow flower in her hair is Mertila Jones, the grandmother of Aiyana Jones. She was sleeping on her couch with Aiyana when the police burst into her home and shot the sleeping ten-year old Aiyana to death. 
 Mertila Jones spoke at the rally. Also speaking was Mike Hamlin, founding member of the the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (this was back in the sixties) and  co-author of Detroit: I Do Mind Dying. Faith and community leaders also spoke, as did a former Black Panther and and ISO comrade.
