Childhood Home Of Fred Hampton Officially Designated As Historical Landmark

The childhood home of Fred Hampton, the legendary Black Panther Party leader who was assassinated by Chicago police in 1969, is now regarded as a historical landmark. Hampton Jr., who has been leading the Save The Hampton House initiative, said the fight to save his father’s Chicago home “is bigger than a building and more significant than a structure.”

“Among other purposes, it serves as a major aspect of preserving the extraordinary legacy of Chairman Fred Hampton, the Black Panther Party and that of service to the people in general,” Hampton Jr. said in a statement, according to Because Of Them We Can.
