21-year-old Fred Hampton was murdered by the Chicago Police Department as he lay in bed on December 4th, 1969. Hampton was the founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, and struggled militantly against police brutality, racism and economic injustice in the neighborhoods hit the hardest.

Directors/Filmmakers Mike Gray and Howard Alk arrived on the scene just after the early-morning raid by 12 officers that killed Hampton and fellow Panther Mike Clark. The film investigates the assassinations and reviews the history of the Black Panther Party.

After the film, join a discussion on the history and legacy of the Black Panther Party as a symbol of Black Liberation in New Haven and across the country.
