Trayvon Martin's name could come up at White House discussions

Trayvon Martin's name is likely to come up Friday at the White House, where Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to meet with African American clergy.

The meeting was planned well in advance, a White House official said, and designed so clergy could hear from senior administration officials on issues such as education, housing, justice and faith-based partnerships. It's the sort of meeting they hold routinely with "a range of stakeholders on a variety of issues," the White House said. 

Also in Washington: Protesters plan a demonstration on Saturday at Freedom Plaza near the White House. The event's organizers advise attendees to dress in "all black attire or wear a hoodie." Here's their Facebook page. The event is from 2 to 4 p.m.
