‘The Murder of Fred Hampton’ Screening

October 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is the first of two screenings the Maywood Public Library will present of the documentary “The Murder of Fred Hampton.” 

Writing in the New York Times, critic A.H. Weiler called this 1971 documentary “a disturbingly somber illustration of some of the ills that beset us and our social system,” and “an unleavened indictment of Edward V. Hanrahan, the Illinois State’s Attorney, the policemen in the raid and the Chicago political Establishment.”
