Wade has been outspoken throughout the complex, polarizing case that recently ended with the even more controversial George Zimmerman verdict.

He wrote messages on his shoes in honor of Martin when the story first gathered attention in 2012, and organized a team photo of the Heat in hoodies.

Wade is one of Ebony's four cover photos. The others include Spike Lee and his son, actor Boris Kodjoe and his son, and Martin's parents and brother.

The magazine's upcoming issue features an examination by the three prominent celebrities on how they "approach the topic of racism with their sons."

"As a mother of a young black boy, the tragedy of Trayvon Martin affected me deeply," Ebony editor-in-chief Amy Barnett said in a statement.

"We simply cannot allow the conversations on this issue to come to a standstill."
