Henry Hampton (1940-98)

Henry Hampton (1940-98) called 88 Lambert Street in Highland Park home, and his inviting spirit welcomed all.

Henry's Blackside, Inc. was the largest African-American-owned film production company of its time, chronicling political and social movements. His 14-part series Eyes on the Prize is considered to be the definitive documentary on the civil rights movement.
