Dick Gregory

Picture

Dick Gregory is an African American comedian and civil rights activist whose social satire changed the way white Americans perceived African American comedians since he first performed in public.

I personally know him more as a Health Guru. His career includes a breadth of work ranging from comedy, civil rights, women’s rights, natural healing/diet, and even hostage negotiations. He was just given a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this very month. You can read about that HERE.
 
I had the privilege of hearing Mr. Gregory give the commencement speech at my alma mater Life University College of Chiropractic as one of his children was in the graduating class. It was an amazing treat, and he brought the house down!
 
These days, he rarely performs comedy, he says, but he’s constantly on the road, lecturing on diet and ethics. For more about his schedule and accomplishments of this living legend, you can check out his website www.dickgregory.com.
