** Free event! RSVP through the ticket link below **
35mm print! Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by the National Film Preservation Foundation and The Packard Humanities Institute.
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.
In celebrating their 50th anniversary, the Seattle Chapter of the Black Panther Party (SCBPP) invites youth and young adults throughout the Seattle area to join them, especially students who are currently involved with Black Student Union (BSU) chapters at local high schools, colleges and universities. Collaborating directly with young people, SCBPP seeks to reignite their mission and stand up for the right to land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace.
Seattle youth are encouraged to join SCBPP for several activities and opportunities in March, April, and May of 2018 – read more here!
