I just watched this powerful movie about Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers.

I learnt a lot.

Daniel Kaluuya was very good as Hampton.

nice is the movie.
Fred Hampton was duly assassinated by white power and the wickedness in the FBI then and (still so now)

In January 1970, the Cook County Coroner held an inquest; the jury concluded that Hampton's and Clark's deaths were justifiable homicides.[11][12][13][14]

A civil lawsuit was later filed on behalf of the survivors and the relatives of Hampton and Clark. It was resolved in 1982 by a settlement of $1.85 million (equivalent to $4.96 million in 2020); the City of Chicago, Cook County, and the federal government each paid one-third to a group of nine plaintiffs. Given revelations about the illegal COINTELPRO program and documents associated with the killings, many scholars now consider Hampton's death an assassination at the FBI's initiative

Yeah, Hoover was just pure evil.

And little has changed since then.
