The Black Panther Party galvanized millions of African Americans against police repression and brutality, upholding the right of armed self-defense. The government launched a campaign of murder, jailings, and disinformation to destroy the BPP. This film documents the Chicago police murder of one of the most charismatic and effective Panther leaders, Illinois Party chapter chairman Fred Hampton.

A fiery orator Hampton was only 20 years old at the time, but his electrifying words and actions were inspiring young Black people to demand respect and to insist that their power and voice be felt.
1971, b&w, 88min.
