The Black Panther Party galvanized millions of African Americans against police repression and brutality, upholding the right of armed self-defense. In response, the government launched a campaign of murder, jailings and disinformation to destroy the BPP.

Hampton was one of the most charismatic and effective Panther leaders. The film follows the 1969 murder of 21-year-old Illinois chapter chairperson Fred Hampton by Chicago police and the subsequent investigation, and includes rare footage of Hampton’s public speeches and highlights the social programs he led.

Join the PSL in watching the film and discussing the revolutionary legacy of the Black Panther Party. (Film: 1971, 88min.)
