“Houston Black Panther leader Carl Hampton was only 21 when he was assassinated by Houston Police snipers on July 26, 1970. Yesterday, Dec. 17, he would have turned 64 years old.
“We were at his grave today to remember the loss that Carl’s murder still leaves in our hearts and in the struggle for freedom. This is his son, Massai, who was an infant when HPD took his father from him forever.”
