1. The Assassination of Fred Hampton
Fred Hampton (August 30, 1948 – December 4, 1969) was an African-American activist and deputy chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. 
Hampton’s organizing skills, substantial oratorical gifts, and personal charisma allowed him to rise quickly in the Black Panthers. Once he became leader of the Chicago chapter, he organized weekly rallies, worked closely with the BPP’s local People’s Clinic, taught political education classes every morning at 6am, and launched a project for community supervision of the police. Hampton was also instrumental in the BPP’s Free Breakfast Program.
An effective leader and talented communicator, those very qualities marked him as a major threat in the eyes of the FBI.
He was killed while sleeping in his apartment during a raid by a Chicago Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was only 21 years old.
