BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia Tech is continuing to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s legacy by holding a virtual discussion with Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton.

The conversation is a part of the university’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity’s online series called ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’.

Fulton talked about life after her son Trayvon, an unarmed teen who was killed in Sandford, Florida, died nine years ago.

She also talked about her book, faith and the support group she started for moms who lost their sons to violence.

“They want somebody that they can reach out to. And so I have accepted the position not because I have applied for it, but because I was appointed. And so I am just doing what my part is in this whole play of life,” said Fulton.

Fulton also spoke about positive changes she would like to see in communities.
