Hip Hop War Report Episode 6 (Chairman Fred Hampton JR Legacy Tour)

Block Report Radio Interview wit’ Chairman Fred Hampton Jr

 

            The Hip Hop War Report Correspondent Minister of Information JR of the POCC: Block Report Radio interviewed Chairman Fred Hampton Jr about the importance of the “POCC’s Long Live the Legacy? as well as the 40th Anniversary of the Black Panther Party. The tour had many stops including Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, and NYC. Chairman Fred goes on to explain the strategy behind some of the organizing that the Black Panthers were doing like the “Free Breakfast? program and the stop sign campaign. He talked about how he, like Tookie Williams, grew up in a climate where “you could either a boy scout or a banger?, not a freedom fighter, in the absence of a freedom fighting organization like the Black Panther Party, which gave the people the vehicle to fight back in our own interest. Chairman Fred says that he dedicates his life, as well as the life of the organization, the Prisoners of Conscience Committee, to making sure that nobody in our community has to grow up in that climate again.

 

            He related how the Black Panther Party’s mission was to demonstrate for the people, so that they could take up the campaigns to fight in their own interest such as the street sign campaign in the 60’s, and he related it to how right now in ’06, youngsters again started getting hit by cars on that same exact corner in North Oakland, and in the spirit of the Black Panther Party, the people took it upon themselves to create stop signs where they thought that they should be. This is a must hear edition of the POCC Block Report Radio right here on Hiphopwarreport.com. Check it…
