SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 33 - Special Program: Dick Gregory, "They're Asking Different Questions Today"
FEATURED SPEAKER: Comedian Dick Gregory
"When you finally get a Black President you get a nice, polite, well-behaved educated one who ain't mad." Gregory was one of a handful of prominent entertainers who consistently supported SNCC. And he was one of the very few of this handful who regularly put his own life on the line. As he explains it: "I made all the money I needed to make, then I bumped into y'all and found out that there's another bank." Dick Gregory acknowledges recent progress in modern politics while addressing continuing problems . He's sure President Obama "can't go to New York by himself and get a cab." The 84-year-old Gregory credits the "integrity of the [Movement] folks" for keeping him healthy. "Young people should listen to old folks, but not too hard."
