"Dick Gregory is a comedian, social satirist, negro pioneer. In a little more than a year he climbed from $10 a day car washer to $5,000 a week headliner, doing what some said he shouldn't do, most said he couldn't do, but what Gregory knows he must do- tell the truth about segregation so that it brings smiles instead of hurt and insight even to the insensetive. His method: Once I get them laughing, I can say anything" (from the introduction).
