BLACK PANTHERS DOCUMENTARY and the FBI's Assassination of a Radical Civil Rights Leader: "The Murder of Fred Hampton"
February 25 (Friday),
University of Washington, Smith Hall, room 120 (in the quad near Red Square)
Shortly after the assassination of Malcolm X, the Black Panther Party was formed to continue the struggle of the civil rights movement. Drawing from Malcolm's political evolution in his last year, the Panthers concluded that racism was perpetuated by capitalism and advocated socialism as an alternative to the oppression experienced by people of color and workers under capitalism.
Come view this eye-opening, rare documentary about the heroic struggle of Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers to liberate black people. Join us afterwards for a discussion on what lessons we can learn from their example and how we can build a mass movement today to fight racism, the racist "war on drugs," economic exploitation, and attempts to roll back Affirmative Action.
