Dick Gregory speaker

Dick Gregory

Plymouth, USA

American comedian and social activist/critic

His autobiography, "Nigger" (1995), sold 7 million copies

Named #82 of the "100 Greatest Stand-ups of all time" (Comedy Central)

The social satire of legendary comedian Dick Gregory has changed the way white America perceived African-American comedians.

His autobiography, “Nigger” (1995), has sold over seven million copies. Dick ‘s activism during the civil rights movement paired him with other African-American luminaries as Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers. He devoted much of his time to non-violent protest with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and was jailed many times for his dedication to the cause.

Human rights activist and civil rights speaker Dick Gregory continues protesting for the greater good, including conducting fasts and protests for fishermen’s’ rights, ending hunger, and ending the drug problems in the United States. His lasting legacy will be one of non-violence and his belief in social responsibly for all citizens of the planet.

Dick is number 82 on Comedy Central’s list of the “100 Greatest Stand-ups” of all time and has his own star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

Our Comment

"Today, Dick continues to "bang the drum for justice and equality." He uses his social satire, humour, and incredible wit to discuss his life as a civil rights activist and legendary comedian. He talks about his activism during the tumultuous 1960s and beyond, and what he continues to do to help people all over the world."
