This week on WCLK's The Local Take I welcome Monteria Robinson, mother of Jamarion Robinson, back into our talk studio to discuss the new protest on behalf of her son taking place and being planned by Tribe76.com. The founder of Tribe76, Saint de Villain speaks about recent protests at The Mall of Georgia and Lenox Square.
Saint, an independent filmmaker, is producing a "new form" of protest that attracts an audience for one story "a proposal" and then turns the proposal into "a protest."
He explains that while his audience is open and happy ready to celebrate, Tribe76 changes the script so to speak and educate crowd about one time Clark Atlanta University Student Jamarion Robinson, who was shot 76 times by police officers on August 5, 2016. For recent news about the case, click here.
Saint goes on to explain that the purpose of these protest is to not only increase awareness but to encourage others that Justice For Jamarion is a way to end police violence against African American men in our communities. He shares that his goal is to relieve some of the stress that has fallen onto Monteria Robinson as she continues to fight for the truth in the death of her son.
Saint mentions that Tribe76 isn't for everyone, but they are planning a few big thing for the next few months and if you're interested in joining them you can sign up at Tribe76.com.
