"We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity." - Fred Hampton
Today we remember Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, who were killed on this day in 1969 by police in Chicago on an alleged weapons raid. Both worked with the NAACP when they were in high school, and Fred was active with the Black Panther Party. 
They were 21 and 22 years old, respectively. They were shot in their beds in their Chicago apartment. Rest in power.
