Fred Hampton Born August 30, 1948
Fred Hampton was a dynamic young Black leader who was eliminated before reaching the prime of his life. Before his death at 21 years of age Hampton along with many other young Black men of his caliber, during the mid to late sixties, had begun to organize the people with the aim of becoming self reliant, to take control of their own communities and to take responsibility for the defense of their neighborhoods. Please share the story of Fred Hampton  in order for young people today to have the knowledge of the sacrifices that Fred Hampton and his courageous confreres made so that we might continue to strive for self sufficiency, security and prosperity in our places of birth.
