Dick Gregory: Race, Comedy, & Justice

 

http://chicagohumanities.org – See more Chicago Humanities Festival events.

Its hard to predict whether Dick Gregory will be most celebrated as a path-breaking comedian or a trailblazing civil rights activist. Its impossible to imagine the history of either movement without him—or without his unique blending of the two. In the early 1960s, he became one of the first black comedians to perform before integrated audiences. In 1967, he ran for mayor of Chicago against Richard J. Daley, and a year later for president as the Freedom and Peace Party candidate. The author of and contributor to many politically charged books, Gregory is still a staunch, wry political voice across a range of issues as varied as nutrition, social justice, and the environment. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Laura Washington interviews the provocative and always unpredictable Gregory.

Tim Hardaway Sr. Joins Q and D | Knuckleheads Quarantine: E14

Chicago legend Tim Hardaway joins the fellas this week on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. Tim takes us through his journey growing up in Chicago, getting his handles on the city sidewalks, heading off to UTEP, and creating the ‘UTEP two-step’. Laugh along as Tim tells us how Don Nelson snatched him late in the draft and then just how confident he got after his first All-Star Game. Hear about the creation of Run TMC and learn why that scoring phenomenon lasted for only two seasons. Then Tim gets into his Miami years, what it was like ballin’ in the mid ‘90s, and how great it feels to have his jersey retired by the Heat. Tim then discusses Tim Jr. playing in the league and tells a hilarious story about the last time they’ll ever play one-on-one. Tim Hardaway is no joke but he’s got a lot of ‘em! You won’t want to miss this one.
