“On this day (Dec 4) in 1969, revolutionary Marxist-Leninist Chairman Fred Hampton, founder and chairman of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party, was assassinated in his sleep by Chicago police while Akua Njeri, his comrade pregnant wife lay beside him.

Also murdered in this attack was Mark Clark, a member of the Chicago Black Panther Party and founder of the Peoria chapter of the Black Panther Party, who was 22 years old

Fred Hampton served as deputy chairman of the national Black Panther Party and, during his tenure, founded the Rainbow Coalition, a multicultural movement in Chicago that sought to form an alliance between Black, Latinx, and white workers and oppressed people in Chicago. He also helped forge an alliance between major Chicago street gangs to help bring about an end to infighting and to instead fight the wretched capitalist system.

Fred Hampton’s speeches called not just for working class solidarity and an end to racism, but for an end to Black capitalism, which he and the Black Panther Party as a whole, viewed as detrimental to the fight against white supremacy.

Fred Hampton once declared: “We’ve got to face the fact that some people say you fight fire with fire, but we say you put fire out best with water. We say you don’t fight racism with racism. We’re gonna fight racism with solidarity. We say you don’t fight capitalism with no Black capitalism, you fight capitalism with socialism.”

-Dec 26, 1893: birth of Mao Tse Tung (d. 9/9/1893 – see graphic)
