Description
Comedian and author Dick Gregory discusses his participation in the civil rights movement, focusing on his experiences in Greenwood, Mississippi, during voter registration demonstrations. San Francisco Chronicle columnist Ralph Gleason conducted the interview at the Pacifica Radio KPFA studios in Berkeley, California, shortly after Gregory arrived in San Francisco to keep a nightclub engagement. Gregory eloquently discusses nonviolence in the southern civil rights movement, the game of who could outwit who that he engaged in with Greenwood police, differing racial attitudes North and South, and effects of his activism on his career as an entertainer.
