The One and Only Dick Gregory

Black History Month

Part of Black History Month, presented by Northwestern Mutual!

Directed by Andre Gaines, THE ONE AND ONLY DICK GREGORY is a 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. The film features Gregory’s personal reflections, archival footage, and interviews with the artists he influenced – including Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and Wanda Sykes.
