Hundreds of Houstonians peacefully marched through Third Ward earlier this evening in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. The march continued on towards a stretch of 288 where protesters blocked vehicles and continued moving in anger, disgust and pain over the verdict. Carrying a coffin, protesters walked across Southmore and downward onto the highway in a sea of colors and races.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of teenage Trayvon Martin.
