Andrew Gillum sees little involvement from Black Lives Matter despite racially charged campaign

The 2012 slaying of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin ignited both the Black Lives Matter movement and the political career of Andrew Gillum, whose campaign against Florida’s “stand your ground” personal defense law was instrumental in elevating him to Tallahassee mayor.

Those who claimed leadership roles in the movement are more interested these days in working the speakers’ circuit than leading protests in the streets.
