Chairman Fred Hampton was 21 years old when he was assassinated by the FBI, who coerced a petty criminal named William O’Neal to help them silence him and the Black Panther Party.  But they could not kill Fred Hampton’s legacy and, 50 years later, his words still echo…louder than ever.

"I am a revolutionary!"
         
In 1968, a young, charismatic activist named Fred Hampton became Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, who were fighting for freedom, the power to determine the destiny of the Black community, and an end to police brutality and the slaughter of Black people.

 ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’: Shaka King’s Movie Wrestles With the History of Black Power

This political film -- starring Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya -- shouldn’t be mistaken for history but it will most certainly educate a new cohort about the Black Panthers


First, history: In December 1968, almost exactly a year before the murder of Black Panther chairman Fred Hampton by the FBI, Paramount Pictures released what remains one of the most curious artifacts in the history of Hollywood -- hardly a hotbed for radical views of black politics.  It is a film titled Uptight. Its subject: a black former steel-mill worker played by Julian Mayfield, now an unreliable alcoholic who, in his desperation, in the confused ideological haze that besets him upon the death of Martin Luther King Jr., does an extraordinary thing. He sells out his own friends and neighbors, people who belong to a group called “the Committee,” whose politics, though altogether vague, have an obvious analogue in the real-life political circumstances of the film’s own moment: the Black Panthers.

Stream ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ now on HBO Max.

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH MOVIE REVIEW | Double Toasted - Today we are giving our review for Judas and the Black Messiah and despite the soundtrack that was experienced in the full movie trailer and trailer 2, we gotta' tell you that as hyped as you are to see this movie, the ending is going to make you very mad, and there is a clip or two from the movie that'll also aggravate you, but is the movie well made despite the source material that could be infuriating? Well that's why we're here to tell you!
