Judas and The Black Messiah

Judas and The Black Messiah. The new movie details the events leading up to the assassination of Fred Hampton, the chairman head of the Illinois Black Panther Party, operating in Chicago during the late 1960’s.  The movie also dramatizes the involvement of FBI informant William O’Neal who was deeply embedded in the black panther party in chicago at the time.  As part of our black history month discussions… we separate fact from fiction and take a deep dive into the Fred Hampton story.
