Hours before George Zimmerman was acquitted for the death of Trayvon Martin, Lester Chambers, the 73-year-old soul singer, who was part of the 1960’s music group The Chambers Brothers, was physically attacked. Why? According to witnesses, it was because, while singing at the Hayward Russell City Blues Festival, he made the mistake of dedicating Curtis Mayfield’s Civil Rights anthem “People Get Ready,” to Trayvon Martin. So, Dinalynn Andrews Potter, a white 43-year-old woman, jumped on stage and pushed Chambers to the ground. Potter was arrested and Chambers was taken to the hospital.
