Possible outtake from the 1971 documentary film 'The Murder of Fred Hampton', featuring an excerpt from a speech by Fred Hampton in which he explains that society needs to fight for peace: "Black people need some peace. White people need some peace ... and we're gonna have to struggle religiously to bring about some peace because the people we're asking for peace, they are a bunch of meglamaniac war mongers! And we got to ... struggle with them to make 'em understand what peace means!" Hampton was deputy chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party and was killed in his apartment on December 4th 1969.
