Tonight, we join with many across this world, and thank God for the life and work of Dick Gregory, who passed this weekend at the age of 84. An activist and comedian, who’s brilliance was only surpassed by his commitment, often used his rapier wit to cause us to laugh when we should have been crying. His fight to build up, inspire, and strengthen black people continued well into his last days… and his passing leaves a gaping hole in the landscape of Black America.
We salute you brother Gregory. Our eternal thanks and prayers go out to your family.
