    Sanford FL. NAACP Rally


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     lrothwell shot these photos on March 31 of an NAACP rally for Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida; the town where Martin was shot by community watch officer George Zimmerman. He estimates that 'thousands' were in attendance. 'People were fired up,' he said. 'They wanted it to be a peaceful rally, but they're looking for results, so there were plenty of calls to action.'
