Thursday, 7-5-18; 6:40 PM, SPECIAL RE-PLAY FROM 2015 OF DICK GREGORY INTERVIEW: Dick Gregory - Author, civil & human rights activist, comedian, humanitarian, anti-drug crusader, health freedom advocate, philosopher, peoples advocate, nutritionist, and recording artist. Dick Gregory first gained notoriety as a comedian in the late 50's joining a new generation of comedians (including Nipsey Russel, Bill Cosby and Godfrey Cambridge) who broke from the stereotypical minstrel characterization of Blacks. Dick evolved in his comedic presentation by beginning to focus on current events, human rights and Black issues. During the American turmoils of the 60's, Dick's Awareness and compassion lead him to spend more time for health and social justice than on performing. He even ran for president at one time!
In summary, Dick's breath of work spanned over half a century of activism for the disenfranchised. Hear this re-play interview from 2015 of this historic icon.
