PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The Annual Men’s Day Program at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) will be combined with the Empowering the Next Generation of Leaders Lecture Series to host Richard Claxton "Dick" Gregory April 7 at 11:30am. The free, public event will take place in the L.A. Davis, Sr. Student Union Lounge.
Gregory is an African American comedian and civil rights activist whose social satire changed the way white Americans perceived African American comedians since he first performed in public.
An author of several books, it's important to note that no biography of Dick Gregory would be complete without mentioning that he and his beloved wife, Lil, had ten kids who have become highly respected members of the national community in a variety of fields. They are: Michele, Lynne, Pamela, Paula, Stephanie (aka Xenobia), Gregory, Christian, Miss, Ayanna and Yohance.
