A good friend of mine asked if I wanted to see Dick Gregory and I was a bit apprehensive. I knew of Mr. Gregory’s legacy in comedy, but wasn’t familiar with his work. I knew of his activism but wasn’t familiar with what it is he was involved in currently. Man, what a lesson in funny and social consciousness. For over an hour, he taught the audience what it still means to be Black in America and gave examples of how we can improve our status. If you get a chance to catch Mr. Gregory, trust me, it’ll be completely worth the time to see him.
