Fred Hampton was the leader of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party.

This film depicts his brutal murder by the Chicago police and its subsequent
investigation, but also documents his activities in organizing the Chapter, his
public speeches, and the programs he founded for children during the last
eighteen months of his life.

An unprecedented, historically significant documentary on the slain leader of
the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party, Fred Hampton, killed in 1969 by
Chicago police while he slept in his bed in his apartment. Filmmakers Mike Gray
and Howard Alk were already shooting a portrait of this charismatic speaker and
community organizer when his murder occurred.

Followed by live performance by Horace Glasper, known for his work on Cuttin Da
Mustard (2008), King of Stage: The Woodie King Jr. Story (2018) and Heaven Ain't
Hard to Find (2010). He will be performing a skit entitled “Fred.”

Followed by Short piece by King Downing "...But You Can't Kill A Revolution"

King Downing is an attorney and founder of the Human Rights-Racial Justice
Center, which advo- cates and organizes on criminal and economic injustice,
including police practices, racial profil- ing and mass incarceration. HRRJC
advocacy ex- amples range from youth-criminal justice for the organization of
Nicole Bell, (whose fiancé Sean Bell was killed by the NYPD) to the Ferguson
Le- gal Defense Committee to tribal border sover- eignty. HRRJC is a member of
the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow.
