Murder of Fred Hampton


But You Can’t Kill a Revolution
16 min
A TV network investigation team visits a small Louisiana town to film racial profiling and the police killing of an unarmed grandfather on his porch. There they find out that the town is also home to the grave of Black Panther Party Leader, Fred Hampton, and the dynamic Illinois State Chapter Chairman. Hampton was killed in an illegal Chicago police raid in 1969. Activists around the world remember "Chairman Fred", but so does the Ku Klux Klan. "You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution! You can kill a revolutionary, but you can't kill the revolution!!!" - Fred Hampton
