The New York Daily News ran a powerful front page about the George Zimmerman trial on Monday.
Zimmerman was found not guilty on Saturday in the killing of Trayvon Martin. The decision by a Florida jury set off a wave of protests around the country.
The Daily News explicitly linked Martin, the unarmed black teenager, to martyrs of the civil rights movement such as Emmett Till, and to black victims of hate crimes like James Byrd, Jr.
