Odaḯ ƒ◎r 3 – тℌε Fred Hampton ฿εαт ✞α℘ε
I was motivated to complete this Beat Tape after reading the book written by Jeffrey Haas, “The Assassination of Fred Hampton”, in addition to re watching the Blank Panther Party PBS documentary “Vanguard of the Revolution”.
I have known about and respected Mr. Fred Hampton since I was a kid, but I admit that I have never taken the personal time to conduct the proper research on his life, various accomplishments, and his overall impact on society.
In Present day America, I feel his message and level of commitment is essential, perhaps even as much as it was in the past. He was truly about fighting for human rights, empowering all the people, providing education and resources to the youth, in addition to establishing proper self-defense mechanisms to protect the people from Domestic Terrorism.
I decided to release this beat tape of course in respect to the great Mr. Fred Hampton, but also with the hope that the youth can gain some knowledge and influence from Mr. Hampton’s life, in which they then can apply the learned principles to better society in present day.
