Summary: Featured speakers/guests:

The Murder of Fred Hampton began as a film portrait of Hampton and the Illinois Black Panther Party, but half way through the shoot, Hampton was murdered by Chicago police.
In an infamous moment in Chicago history and politics, over a dozen policemen burst into Hampton's apartment while its occupants were sleeping, killing Hampton and fellow Panther Mark Clark and brutalizing the other occupants.
Filmmakers Mike Gray and Howard Alk arrived a few hours later to shoot film footage of the crime scene that was later used to contradict news reports and police testimony.
"You can jail the revolutionary, but you cant jail the revolutionYou might murder a freedom fighter like Bobby Hunton, but you cant murder freedom fighting." - Fred Hampton.
