We know that Fred Hampton was killed by police in 1969 when he was only 21 years old, but those who surrounded him — whether they be his loved ones or those who fought against him — continued on with their lives. For Roy Mitchell, the FBI agent who hired a informant William O'Neal to track him down, that meant a continued career in law enforcement. For his fellow Panthers leader Bobby Rush, it meant a switch to traditional politics, a job he is still active in to this day.
There's also Hampton's partner, Akua Njeri (formerly known as Deborah Johnson), who played a role in the production of the film, along with her and Hampton's son, Fred Hampton Jr.
