Entrepreneur and Albany State University Senior Kendall Ingraham says he noticed a lacking in publicity of the Trayvon Martin case and wanted to use his talents to help get the message out to people.
Ingraham, who has his own clothing line "LMG," began pressing designs on hoodies for his college, reading "Albany State is Trayvon Martin."
"Just seeing that I have the capabilities to produce clothing, and for a lot of people at this university clothing is their statement for the day, so for the day our statement - for the people who wanted to get a hoodie - is 'Albany State University is Trayvon Martin,'" says Ingraham.
He says he's contacted other historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) to made hoodies with their college's name on them. Ingraham says he wants to see the message spread from Albany State to other surrounding colleges.
Ingraham says the hoodies cost $15 but cost him $14 to make.
"I'm really not profiting anything; it's just something I want to do to give back because with my clothing line I profit off of that but I wouldn't want to profit off of this situation," he says.
