Dick Gregory, the pioneering black satirist who transformed cool humor into a barbed force for civil rights in the 1960s, then veered from his craft for a life devoted to protest and fasting in the name of assorted social causes, health regimens and conspiracy theories, died Saturday in Washington. He was 84.
"Dick Gregory, Who Found Humor in the Civil Rights Struggle, Dies at 84" is from the August 20, 2017 Domestic section of The New York Times. It was written by Clyde Haberman and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
