With the acquittal of George Zimmerman continuing to reverberate nationwide, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is scheduled to address the matter Monday in a speech to a predominantly African American sorority.

Holder is the featured speaker at the social action luncheon of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its 1913 founding by 22 women at Howard University in Washington, D.C.

On Tuesday, Holder travels to Florida to address the NAACP’s annual convention in Orlando, a short drive from the Sanford, Fla., courthouse where Zimmerman was found not guilty Saturday night of charges that he murdered unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin last year.

According to an Obama administration official, Holder will speak about the case briefly and in broad terms in part of his address to Delta Sigma Theta in Washington and will discuss it in greater depth in his speech to the NAACP in Florida.
