NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Dozens of people marched through Nashville Wednesday night with a Florida teenager on their minds.

The story of Trayvon Martin, his death and the acquittal of the man who shot him have polarized the nation, but that story is also opening dialogue about where our country is now and where it's going.

A march for peace began Wednesday on the campus of Tennessee State University with about 200 people - many of them TSU students.

They then walked about two miles to the Nashville Farmer's Market, chanting, "Justice for Martin."

It was the second such demonstration in recent days in Nashville. The first was at Legislative Plaza over the weekend.
