This galvanizing documentary started out as a portrait of Fred Hampton, the influential 20-year-old leader of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panthers. The film became a shocking expose of a government conspiracy to eliminate radical activists when Hampton and Mark Clark were killed by police under the orders of State’s Attorney Edward Hanrahan. Preceded by The Jungle (1967, 22 min.), a dramatized documentary created by Philadelphia inner-city high school students. Sponsored by Cinematheque. Cost: Free
