finally a movie made exactly for me

but seriously: the spate of assinations during/around this time period make me so frustrated and angry to the point of tears. the u.s. always balks in the face of real change. i hope this movie is done well, fred deserves it.

will they include the fact that Amnesty International's co-founder Luis Kutner snitched on Fred Hampton?

Buried in JFK files released in April is a detailed account of Amnesty International co-founder Luis Kutner informing the FBI about the Black Panther's gun caches and BPP leader Fred Hampton saying Nixon must die https://t.co/UNPYZJv0mz pic.twitter.com/6DDUcwqMyl

Amnesty International co-founder Luis Kutner told the FBI "he believed speakers like" Chicago Black Panther Party leader Fred "Hampton were psychotic, and it is only when they are faced with court action that they stop their 'ranting and raving'."
