WATCH: State of the Black Union Address and Q&A with Sybrina Fulton

It is remembered as one of the most influential events of Fall Quarter 2014 and even one of the best events of the school year: State of the Black Union.

When For Members Only decided to bring Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, the whole campus knew her keynote would be very pertinent to the state of our country today. Thus, over 600 people were present at the event.

Watch her address and the Q&A that follows (which was co-sponsored by NABJ-NU!).
