Black Authors I LOVE! – Day 5

Standard

Denis Waitley

Today’s featured author for my series Black Authors I LOVE! is none other than Dick Gregory. Mr. Gregory is better known as a comedian and a Civil Rights Activist, but his autobiography released in 1964 is a book well worth reading. Mr. Gregory is a national treasure who marched with Dr. King and advised some of the world’s greats like Michael Jackson. He is one of our elders who doesn’t mind putting himself on the line to spread his truth. The younger generation may know him for his controversial videos on YouTube where he addresses all sorts of conspiracy theories, but controversy is nothing new to this icon. Anyone who names his autobiography Nigger isn’t afraid of a little scrutiny, but his wisdom is needed.
