I noticed his age and wondered when he was born relative to my father. The day after.

I saw him live once, in the early seventies at Oberlin. He was, like Mort Sahl, a heavy Kennedy conspiracy theorist and hat's what he talked about. The timing of his visit was earlier on the evening they first broadcast the Zapruder film on television (if I remember correctly).

I remember reading his amazing exchange in a Southern diner:

"We don't serve Black people."

"That's OK, I don't eat Black people."

I met Dick Gregory years after he was drawing large crowds all over the country.

He came to Southern Connecticut State University where I was doing part time work as an adjunct, co-writing a play, and ad hoc advisor to the Black Student Union.

During the brief conversation we had he said, "one of the best forms of protest is to make the authorities do something that doesn't make any sense....even to them."
