Officer-Involved Death of Young Black Man a Test for Our Community

The drums began beating on Friday, March 6, shortly after 6:30 p.m. when Tony Robinson was shot dead in an apartment on Willy Street in Madison. The drums went straight into the ears of those who wanted to hear. African drums are how ancient Africans communicated messages across long distances. When captured Africans were chained and forced into slavery in America, they carved the drums again to sound the truth across plantations, tell what was really happening. Drums were outlawed and the hands of the drummers were cut off so that they could never communicate again.
