Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and activist Alice Walker joins us talk about the death of Trayvon Martin. “It’s a symptom of our illness,” Walker says. “We are a very sick country.

And part of it is that we have never looked to see where we went off the trail… [Trayvon Martin] was ours. And I don’t mean just ours, black people, but all of ours. I mean, these children, they are our future, and they have to be protected.”
