19-year-old Tony Robinson of Sun Prairie killed on Williamson Street by police in Madison, Wisconsin #BlackLivesMatter • March 7, 2015

The Badger Herald story on this is a good place to get your start.

 

To get the fuller picture on the immediate protest that happened after the killing as well as the the sit-in at the City County building, the family reaction, and the response from Madison’s Young Gifted and Black, try linking to the hashtag #WillyStreet or #AnthonyRobinson or try the older tag #BlackLivesMatter

Also: Review the tweets of @itsghastlycrew, @ndrewhahn@RebeccaKemble and @velenajones who were at Willy Street and/or the City County building last night.

 

I realize this meeting announcement is late for a lot of people.  I caught wind of these events late myself.  I’ll be at the meeting hopefully tweeting some, taking some notes, and hopefully learning a lot more.
