Publisher's Summary

Uncovering a cold-blooded execution at the hands of a conspiring police force, this engaging account relentlessly pursues the murderers of Black Panther Fred Hampton. Documenting the entire 14-year process of bringing the killers to justice, this chronicle also depicts the 18-month court trial in detail. Revealing Hampton himself in a new light, this examination presents him as a dynamic community leader whose dedication to his people and to the truth inspired the young lawyers of the People's Law Office, solidifying their lifelong commitment to fighting corruption. Contending with FBI stonewalling and unlimited government resources bent on hiding a darker plot, this reconstruction relates an inspiring narrative of upholding morality in one man’s memory.

A Story No One Can Forget

This is the case that broke open the COINTELPRO operation at the FBI and all of J. Edgar Hoover’s dirty tricks.

With the Aaron Swartz tragedy so fresh in our minds, it's worthwhile to re-visit the machinations of institutional persecution and cover-up that comes right from the top.

Fred Hampton is still a household name in the black community and anyone who ever filed a “Freedom of Information Act" request.

I helped organize a national tour of the movie based on Hampton's case in the 1970s... it was seared into my mind. I’m delighted to find Haas's excellent new book on the whole saga.

The story is enthralling— scary, suspenseful, funny— young people hanging onto the edge of their seats by sheer wit and passion. It’s hard to believe they were so young, in their late teens. and taking on the world. Inspiring.

Excellent narration by George Newborn who brings emotion and clarity to the reading.

A must read for everyone committed to justice

The best book I have read about the 1960's, 1970's US radical liberation groups.
Written by someone who lived through it and was committed to the ideals of such a movement.
