The controversial death of Trayvon Martin is serving as a catalyst surrounding a local town hall meeting that was held Saturday night in Panama City.

Local activists talked about what they believed to be deeper issues surrounding the Trayvon Martin case including allegations of underlying racism.

"We want to dance around the topic as if it doesn't exist, but it does still exist in America and we want to start some healthy dialogue about it; in order for us to come to a sound solution to rid that in our community and also our nation as well" said event organizer Jamil Davis.

Close to fifty people packed the A&M theater on Harrison Avenue for the two-hour discussion.
