Daniel Kaluuya plays Fred Hampton, the chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party in the late 1960s in Chicago in Judas and the Black Messiah.
The FBI placed Hampton on its "Rabble-Rouser" or "Agitator" index, identifying him as a key militant leader who posed a danger to National Security and planted an informant, William O'Neal, played by LaKeith Stanfield, to track Hampton's messaging and movements from the inside.
Directed by Shaka King, the film is inspired by true events. It has garnered both critical acclaim and is an award season darling, with Daniel winning so far five awards for his portrayal. He is also up for an Academy Award later this month.
