Thursday, May 26th, 6pm Reception / 6:30pm Program Black Archives of Mid-America 1722 E. 17th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the establishment of The Black Panther Party, The Black Archives of Mid-America will proudly host "An Evening with Chairman Fred Hampton Jr.: The Legacy of the Black Panther Party." Following in the footsteps of his father Chairman Fred Hampton, as the Chairman of Prisoners of Conscience Committee / Black Panther Party Cubs (POCC/BPPC), Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. has been in the forefront of the struggle against racial injustice, political oppression, and the proliferation of the prison industrial complex. In light of recent events that have occurred in Ferguson, MO, the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou), Charleston, South Carolina -- the list goes on and on -- it is clear that our nation is in desperate need of dialogue that leads to action and that is exactly what Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. will provide. Don't miss this rare opportunity to engage with a true revolutionary.
