Dick Gregory was on the front line in the ’60s during the civil rights era; today he continues to be a "drum major for justice and equality."
A St. Louis-born comedian-turned-civil rights activist, Gregory’s social satire helped change the way white Americans perceived African American comedians. At age 85, Gregory continues to organize protests (having been arrested several times), write and perform while enjoying time with his wife, Lillian, and 10 grown children.
