Dick Gregory Comedian Activist Photographs (30)

Dick Gregory Comedian Activist Photographs (30)

Comedian, Dick Gregory, is a man of strongly held convictions and made his presence known among the civil and political turmoil of the 1960's. Whether marching for civil rights, against school segregation or fasting as a protest to war, it was always clear where stood. Here is a collection of (30) fine wire photos of Dick Gregory taken between 1963 and 1978. Standouts include: 1964 image of Gregory holding the $250,000 reward check (signed by Hugh Hefner) he offered for information leading to the recovery of three civil rights workers, eventually found murdered in Mississippi; Gregory in 65' directing a civil rights march on the Chicago neighborhood of Mayor Daley in protest of school segregation; skeletal in 1968 after a 40 day hunger strike in opposition to the Vietnam War. Sized from 5x8" to 8.5 x 12" the photos range in condition from VG to MT with most on the better end of the range.
