Summary "In the 1960s, Black entertainer Dick Gregory stood on the front lines of the civil rights movement, relying on his natural outspokenness to draw attention to the struggles of minorities in America. Over the decades, Gregory charmed audiences with his acerbic wit and intelligence, inspiring generations of Black comedians, from Dave Chappelle to Chris Rock and Kevin Hart, to take to the stage of standup comedy while lending a critical voice to Black America."-- Publisher's website.
"Feature-length documentary examining activist, pop-culture icon and thought leader Dick Gregory, whose work as a self-described 'agitator' shaped a generation demanding justice. As a renowned Black comedian, Gregory had a platform to take on the most incendiary battles of hunger, gender equity, and civil rights--stirring trouble and making headlines in the service of social justice."-- Container.
