MIAMI – Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade shared a photo Tuesday on his Instagram of a new Ebony magazine cover featuring him and his two sons, showing support for Trayvon Martin.

On the cover of the Sept. 2013 issue of Ebony, Wade and his two sons, Zaire and Zion, are seen wearing gray hoodies. Underneath them is text that reads "We are Trayvon."


Wade and his sons were wearing the hoodies in support of the South Florida teenager who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

"Our groundbreaking September 2013 issue will explore concerns around racial bias, how to find solutions for those concerns and how to heal and move forward," Ebony said on its Facebook page. "We are honored to have Trayvon's parents and his brother, Jahvaris Fulton, grace the cover of our subscribers' issue."

The latest issue, released on Tuesday, devoted the Sept. issue to Trayvon Martin and explores the "Stand Your Ground" laws.

Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Martin.
