The shooting death of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent trial of George Zimmerman on second degree murder charges have raised many questions and stirred debates about race and civil rights across the country.

On Thursday afternoon, the prosecution finished its closing arguments. The defense will present its closing arguments Friday.

As the trial approaches its close, some North Central Florida civil rights leaders are making a last-minute effort to show their support for Martin and to focus attention on the need for peace.
