Gregory confronted bigotry with shockingly disarming humor, deeply influenced other comics like Chris Rock and Richard Pryor, is a favorite of President Obama, marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., has also been a prolific writer, muckraker, provocateur, candidate for mayor of Chicago and for president of the United States. Experience the comic genius of Dick Gregory and the poetic final words of his mentor, slain civil rights activist, Medgar Evers: "Turn Me Loose."
