Read the story behind the award-winning film Judas and the Black Messiah

On December 4, 1969, attorney Jeff Haas was in a police lockup in Chicago, interviewing Fred Hamptons fiance. Deborah Johnson described how the police pulled her from the room as Fred lay unconscious on their bed.

She heard one officer say, "Hes still alive." She then heard two shots. A second officer said, "Hes good and dead now." She looked at Jeff and asked, "What can you do?" The Assassination of Fred Hampton remains Haass personal account of how he and Peoples Law Office partner Flint Taylor pursued Hamptons assassins, ultimately prevailing over unlimited government resources and FBI conspiracy. Fifty years later, Haas writes that there is still an urgent need for the revolutionary systemic changes Hampton was organizing to accomplish.

Not only a story of justice delivered, this book spotlights Hampton as a dynamic community leader and an inspiration for those in the ongoing fight against injustice and police brutality.
