Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

Judas and the Black Messiah is a disturbing and riveting film that chronicles the story of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton and the informant, William O’Neal, who was coerced by the FBI into going undercover to spy on him. Shaka King and Will Berson deliver powerhouse performances in this film that was inspired by real life events. I had never heard of Hampton before. His story offers another piece of the puzzle regarding systemic racism in our country. The movie is a thought-provoking, enlightening, and inspirational movie that is very relevant today. Hopefully this will open up conversations on liberty, human rights, and freedom for all.
