Items left a curbside memorial to slain teen Trayvon Martin have been collected by the city of Sanford, Fla., upsetting the Martin family, theGrio.com reports.
A city statement said the family had been consulted before the items were taken to the Sanford Museum, but an attorney for Martin's parents said that's not true, theGrio reported. The site said that Francis Oliver, who runs the black history museum in Sanford’s Goldsboro neighborhood, says the city asked to move the memorial there, even though Martin was killed in a mixed-race neighborhood in the city.
