Description

Uncovering a cold-blooded execution at the hands of a conspiring police force, this engaging account relentlessly pursues the murderers of Black Panther Fred Hampton. Documenting the entire 14-year process of bringing the killers to justice, this chronicle also depicts the 18-month court trial in detail. Revealing Hampton himself in a new light, this examination presents him as a dynamic community leader whose dedication to his people and to the truth inspired the young lawyers of the People's Law Office, solidifying their lifelong commitment to fighting corruption. Contending with FBI stonewalling and unlimited government resources bent on hiding a darker plot, this reconstruction relates an inspiring narrative of upholding morality in one man’s memory.

A Story No One Can Forget

This is the case that broke open the COINTELPRO operation at the FBI and all of J. Edgar Hoover’s dirty tricks.

With the Aaron Swartz tragedy so fresh in our minds, it's worthwhile to re-visit the machinations of institutional persecution and cover-up that comes right from the top.

Fred Hampton is still a household name in the black community and anyone who ever filed a “Freedom of Information Act" request.

I helped organize a national tour of the movie based on Hampton's case in the 1970s... it was seared into my mind. I’m delighted to find Haas's excellent new book on the whole saga.

The story is enthralling— scary, suspenseful, funny— young people hanging onto the edge of their seats by sheer wit and passion. It’s hard to believe they were so young, in their late teens. and taking on the world. Inspiring.

Excellent narration by George Newborn who brings emotion and clarity to the reading.

Utterly captivated from stat to finish

The Assassination of Fred Hampton is a book book that should be bought/taught in homes and schools in Chicago, if not around the United States of America. Even today, the themes and tale of this book resonate so heavily that one might imagine that are stuck in the late 1960's during when Fred was alive and fighting.

Wow!!!!!

Very informative and upsetting!! Fred was so young and was murdered in a plot by the Feds. He didn’t stand for violence. He stood for justice for ALL people. Such a sad and disturbing reality! Thankful to have listened to this very impactful point in history. “You can kill a revolutionary but you can’t kill a revolution!” - Fred Hampton. RIP Fred!

Thank God for people like Jeffrey Haas

In this day and age people are actually willing to discount the police brutality issue as being something new. some now have found a way link police in general to white people further adding to the racial divide in this country, and the Orange dumb*** in charge isn't making anything any better. It's good to see that accurate accounts of the past have been preserved through people like Jeffrey; to show at one point in time that divided between classes started to become the main focus of the people rather than race.
