    Trayvon Martin's Death Protested in Baltimore Street Art Series

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Nether410 created this hoodie image in downtown Baltimore. "I think street art is an amazing vehicle for social change and this image will make people pay attention to social issues," he says. Nether410 says growing up in Baltimore he was really struck by race issues. He believes the Trayvon case really brought up the tensions and issues that needed to be addressed. He says he hopes his street art will also make people think about race issues in America. "it may make you think about the repercussion of acting in aggression and just that mind set you get in when a white person passes a black person wearing a hoodie - really it's a piece a clothing," he says.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
