The critically acclaimed biopic “Judas and the Black Messiah” continues to win awards for its striking portrayal of activist Fred Hampton and came back strong at the latest BAFTAs.
During the presentation of the winners, Daniel Kaluuya won the award for Best Supporting Actor. He has already won a Golden Globe, a Critics’ Choice and a SAG Awards, becoming the category favorite for the long-awaited Oscar.
Starring Kaluuya (‘Run!’, ‘Black Panther’), the film also stars LaKeith Stanfield (‘Atlanta’, ‘Brute Jewels’) as William O’Neal, Dominique Fishback (‘Iron Heart’) and Jesse Plemons (‘Breaking Mal’).
With the help of a criminal named William O’Neal, the FBI invests in the attempt to silence Hampton and the Black Panther Party. But they failed to kill the legacy of Fred Hampton. 50 years later, his words still resonate … louder than ever.
Although his life was interrupted, the impact of Fred Hampton continued to reverberate. The government saw the Black Panthers as a militant threat against the status quo and sold this lie to a frightened public at a time of growing civil unrest. But the perception of the Panthers did not correspond to reality. In downtown areas across the United States, they provided free breakfast for children, legal services, medical clinics and sickle cell research and political education. And it was President Fred of Chicago who, recognizing the power of multicultural unity for a common cause, created the Rainbow Coalition – joining forces with other oppressed people in the city to fight for equality and l political empowerment.
