Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin met with publishers earlier this month

The parents of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin have made plans to release a book detailing their experiences throughout the controversial case, according to The New York Times.


Sybrina Fulton
and Tracy Martin reportedly met with publishers earlier this month to shop their project around that will give "the full picture of their son while tracing their own experience of shock and sorrow." The meetings were described as "somber and moving."


Trayvon was shot and killed in February 2012 by George Zimmerman, who was later acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter.


The book will explore the teen's death and trial of Zimmerman, as well as delve into the themes of race and the parents' unwavering faith.


Fulton and Martin told publishers that they have never fully spoken out about their experience with the tragic incident.
