In an effort to continue the conversation about race in America and to explore "Stand your ground" laws, Ebony magazine has released a special edition of its September issue, according to the Huffington Post.

The publication is rolling out four separate covers with the headline "We Are Trayvon," featuring the slain teenager's family, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin with their son Jahvaris Fulton, as well as director Spike Lee and his son Jackson, actor Boris Kodjoe and his son Nicolas and NBA star Dwyane Wade with his sons Zaire and Zion, all wearing grey hoodies.

The powerful images give way to an issue that includes an exclusive interview with Trayvon Martin's parents and a piece with Lee, Kodjoe and Wade exploring how they approach the topic of racism with their sons. Readers will also find an article on racial profiling by Columbia University professor and HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill; a prayer of healing by Bishop T.D. Jakes; a poem for Trayvon Martin by Jill Scott and more.
