    PennTalk #15 Rest In Black Power Fred Hampton & Chadwick Boseman

    PennTalk returns from a short break to discuss the events of this past week of August 23rd-30th. Fred Hampton was assassinated at the age of 21, while asleep in bed next to his pregnant partner. He started the Rainbow Coalition and the free breakfast program for children. We look back at the scenario of events surrounding his murder. We honor the life and legacy of Chadwick Boseman . We end the episode with a 5 for $5 Trivia Round. I think I needed this episode more than the previous ones.
