Explanation of “FROM MARTIN TO TUPAC: POLITICAL ASSASSINATIONS” Elements

  • Film Screening
  • Who Killed Martin Luther King? The film explores several possible theories on Dr. King’s 1968 assassination in Memphis, TN and includes interviews with Martin Luther King III, the late James Earl Ray, former Ray attorney Dr. William Pepper and a host of other important players in the investigation of the assassination. A Q&A with noted journalist and historian A. Peter Bailey follows.
  • The Murder of Fred Hampton – In 1969, Mike Gray and Howard Alk were filming a documentary about Fred Hampton, charismatic leader of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. Midway through production, Hampton was killed by Chicago police; Gray and Alk's crime scene footage, included in this gritty account, was later used to contradict police testimony.
  • Bastards of the Party – Actor, director and reformed Bloods member Cle Sloan traces Los Angeles gang culture from the "great migration" of Blacks to Los Angeles from the South in the 1940’s to the rise and demise of both the Black Panther Party and the US Organization in the mid-1960s, to the formation of what is currently the culture of gangs in Los Angeles and around the world. In chronicling the role of the Los Angeles Police Department and the FBI in the evolution of L.A. gang culture, the film introduces audiences to the legendary Alprentice “Bunchy” Carter, who led the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panthers and was gunned down in 1969 in an incident allegedly instigated by law enforcement officials. Antoine Fuqua produces
  • Biggie & Tupac – British documentarian Nick Broomfield investigates the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace, the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalries and Death Row Records boss Suge Knight in this controversial documentary.
