THE MURDER OF FRED HAMPTON began as a film portrait of Hampton and the Illinois Black Panther Party, but half way through the shoot, Hampton was murdered by Chicago policemen. Over a dozen policeman burst into Hampton's apartment while its occupants were sleeping, killing Hampton and fellow Panther Mark Clark. Filmmakers Mike Gray and Howard Alk arrived later to shoot crime scene film later used to contradict news reports and police testimony. The film was recently restored and reworked by Gray. Also included is a short film, CICERO MARCH, chronicling a group who defied Mayor Richard J. Daley's orders against an anti-racism march into largely white Cicero.
