Interview with Ben Chavis
QUESTION 38
JUDY RICHARDSON:

OK. Give me a sense that you were uniquely aware of the Hampton/Clark assassination when you were in Gary, staying in Gary. I mean in Chicago.

BEN CHAVIS:

When I was staying at the hotel in Chicago, during the Gary Convention, I was acutely aware of the murders of Clark and Hampton, ah, leaders of the Black Panther Party of Chicago. Which was a COINTELPRO assassination. And so I was acutely aware of that, very uneasy about even being in Chicago, getting ready to go to an all-Black convention.

JUDY RICHARDSON:

OK, Cut.

SAM POLLARD:

That's about it. I don't know what else to say.
