About Save The Hampton House

Save The Hampton House is an effort by those working relentlessly to protect the legacy of The Black Panther Party and Chairman Fred Hampton.

The house is located in Maywood, Illinois where Chairman grew up. Work is in progress to preserve the property and transform it into a historic site where the works of The Black Panther Party can be displayed and made available for visitors.

Chairman Fred Hampton, leader of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party, was a revolutionary and an organizer and real model for Chicago, the Black Community, and the ongoing international movement for the liberation of oppressed people.

Under his leadership the IL chapter of the Black Panther Party Provided the Free Breakfast for Children program, Free Medical Programs, Political Education and other Black Panther Party Survival programs to thousands of people. By the time he turned 21, the FBI had seen in Chairman Fred such an extraordinary leader in the movement that they described him as a “threat to the internal security of the country” in order to coordinate his assassination as part of a secret government program to destroy the Black Panther Party.

As a part of COINTELpro, a secret government program designed to destroy the Black Panther Party, his life was cut far too short when he was assassinated on December 4th, 1969, yet his legacy lives on. Save The Hampton House is an effort led by Chairman of the Black Panther Party Cubs, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. and the Widow of Chairman Fred, Akua Njeri formally known as Deborah Johnson to turn Chairman Fred’s childhood home into community resource center to showcase and teach people from all over the world about Chairman Fred Hampton, the Black Panther Party and what he and the party means to Maywood, Chicago and all oppressed communities.
