Abstract :

At the age of twenty-one, Fred Hampton Sr., was assassinated, by a joint operation between the Cook County State's Attorney's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Beyond his assassination, and his involvement with the Black Panthers, Hampton has left many influences in American society. His impact continued after his death, thus he should be remembered and studied as an important figure in the modern Civil Rights and Black Power eras. His impact and legacy have extended far beyond his lifetime and far beyond Chicago and deserves more scholarly attention.
