That’s not Trayvon Martin’s dad in ‘This Is America’

( CNN) The new Childish Gambino video, “This Is America, ” is filled with powerful imagery, but Trayvon Martin’s father is not a part of that.

But, in reality, it’s Calvin C. Winbush II, a Los Angeles-based actor and musician who goes by “Calvin the Second” professionally.
