Rest in Power, Dick Gregory, Dead at 84

Dick Gregory 1967, Chicago, USA

Rest in Power to Dick Gregory! His family confirmed the sad news on his instagram page last night.

Dick Gregory was a comedian and civil rights activist who broke barriers in the 1960s and became one of the first African-Americans to perform at white clubs. He often used segregation and racial injustice as material in his comedic acts. He definitely broke down barriers and was a active voice for the people. Condolences to his family and friends.
