In the second segment former Black Panther and political prisoner Marshall Eddie Conway joins the show to talk about the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Fred Hampton, how Hampton's life and legacy continue to energize and educate current movements, the US government's unrelenting attack on Black Panther members across the country, and the growing movement of the economically oppressed worldwide.
