Fred Hampton was the Chair of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party who was brutally assassinated by the FBI and Chicago police as part of their vicious COINTELPRO program, created to destroy the rising Black Revolution of the 60s. White people who supported the Panthers were nowhere to be found as Panther leaders were murdered and imprisoned. Today, COINTELPRO is back with the latest FBI designation of “black identity extremists, and this time, white people will not be complicit. We will defend the Black Revolution and organize in solidarity with African people’s right to resist and be liberated.
This is a fundraiser for The Reparations Tour; White Solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint
