Black Power 96 remembers our hero Fred Hampton

In 2015, Black Power 96 show host Norman “Otis” Richmond, aka Jalali, wrote an article in remembrance of Fred Hampton and Mark Clark for The Burning Spear newspaper. We are posting an excerpt here.

Published December 7, 2015 on
Shortly before his assassination Fred Hampton prophetically pointed out,
“I believe I’m going to die doing the things I was born to do. I believe I’m going to die high off the people. I believe I’m going to die a revolutionary in the international revolutionary proletarian struggle.”

December 4th 2015 marks the 46th Anniversary of the assassinations of Fred Hampton, the Chairman of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party and Mark Clark of the Peoria Ill. Chapter. Unfortunately, Hampton’s predication came true.

The story of the murders of Hampton and Clark can be found in a new volume “The Assassination of Fred Hampton: How the FBI and the Chicago Police Murdered a Black Panther”, by Jeffrey Haas. It was published in 2009 This work is published by Lawrence Hill Books.

    Thank You my Brother for keeping this before the People. How quickly we forget, and wind up going through the same changes for not preparing for the future because of what the past has shown us. “Oh no we’re going to boycott the NFL!” Now it’s “Kaepernick who?” Thank You for being faithful to the Cause!Our survival!!!
