Dick Gregory, civil rights activist, social critic and comedian, died last weekend at age 84. He holds a special place in UNCG history as he was keynote speaker at UNCG’s first MLK Celebration (see the listing on the UNCG Multicultural Engagement page.) He was followed by John Lewis and Ralph Abernathy in those first three years. Gregory is the only person to twice be the keynote speaker, as he spoke again in 2013.
