Show us your Hoodie
Posted by Cathaleen Curtiss — 26 Mar 2012
Most of us own a hoodie, we wear them on cool nights walking our dogs, with a cup of tea on a rainy day and in support of our favorite teams. Recently they have taken on a new meaning.
From Seattle to Atlanta, Philadelphia to Phoenix thousands of people gathered this weekend to raise awareness of the Trayvon Martin shooting on February 26. Most participants wore hoodies, similar to the one 17-year-old Trayvon was wearing the night he died.
We have gathered a collection of our favorite Hoodies photographed by JPG contributors over the years. They reflect a statement made by the Reverend Oscar Tillman at a rally in Phoenix, AZ, "This is not about Black or White or red, green or yellow. This is about a young man on his way back to meet with his family."
