“You can kill a revolutionary but you can’t kill the revolution.” Was it a prophecy, these words spoken by the gunned-down Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton? Or was it something more nefarious - more systemic? On the Season 3 opener of Black History Year, we explore the U.S. government's role in the assassination of the fearless Chairman Fred Hampton and sit down with his son, Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr., to discuss his father’s legacy and what it truly means to challenge the system and fight for revolution.

About The Show

Learning your history makes you - and your people - stronger. As Black people, we know we’re left out of the history books. That the media images are skewed. That we need access to experts, information and ideas so we can advance our people. Black History Year connects you to the history, thinkers, and activists that are left out of the mainstream conversations. You may not agree with everything you hear, but we’re always working toward one goal: uniting for the best interest of Black people worldwide.
