On Thursday, April 21 at 11:30 a.m., students all across campus walked out of their classes, mirroring when Denzel “King Shabazz” McDonald was escorted out of his class by University of Wisconsin Police Department just a week earlier.
More than 250 students flocked together to the top of Bascom Hill to initiate the march down the hill and across campus.
UW students mounted a large sheet paper across the Abe Lincoln statue with a list of specified demands for UWPD and university administrators.
Students then marched into Helen C. White Hall where they continued their chants.
The group of students weaved through North Park Street, West Johnson Street and University Avenue as they blocked traffic by linking arms.
