Seeing and Believing 281 | Shaka King’s "Judas and the Black Messiah"

Seeing & Believing closes out Black History Month with a look at the buzzed-about new film that is based on the true story of the death of Fred Hampton.

But do these powerhouse performances result in a good film overall, and does the film do justice to the life and political convictions of a man like Hampton? Listen to find out!
