Fred Hampton Assassination: A People’s History with #BlackPantherParty Lawyer Flint Taylor

November 30, 2020

We commemorate the assassination of Black Panther Party leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, 51 years ago this week, with one of their lawyers, Flint Taylor. He tells Tricia Rose and Cornel West how he successfully sued the F.B.I. for orchestrating the massacre on Chicago's west side as part of COINTELPRO. Taylor is co-founder of the People's Law Office and author of "The Torture Machine: Racism and Police Violence in Chicago", now available via paperback, hardcover, or digital from your local independent bookstore.
