Like most of the black community, actor Omari Hardwick was deeply disturbed by the not-guilty verdict in George Zimmerman's trial. He decided to channel his feelings into a poem and then reached out to his peers to help him present it in a video.

The result is "Little Black Boy Wonder," dedicated to Trayvon Martin. In the video Hardwick recites the poem with help from actors including Marlon Wayans, David Oyelowo, Eriq La Salle, Bill Duke and Gary Dourdan.
