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.
