  • Rod Stewart
  • Madonna
  • Usher
  • Pattie Labelle
  • Kanye West

  • and others …

Update from April D. Ryan:

I obtained from multiple sources early Monday a list of artists and entertainers who my sources told me had committed to a boycott of Florida following the George Zimmerman acquittal. Since publishing that list I have heard from several representatives of the artists named who say, on behalf of their clients, they are uncomfortable being identified on that list and are seeking additional information.

    BLACK AMERICA is heartbroken that Roland Martin will not show respect for Trayvon Martin and boycott Florida. Martin will speak at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) convention beginning July 31. Sadly, Blacks are now calling places where Roland works to ask that they discontinue their relationship with the broadcaster. What a mess!
