The Urban League of Greater Richmond is proud to announce “An Evening with Dick Gregory”. This unforgettable evening, produced by Freedom Marketing, will benefit the Urban League’s Professional Development Programs with a portion of the net proceeds. Dick Gregory, activist, philosopher, comedian, and author will perform at the Historic Byrd Theater on November 11, 2011 at 7:30pm.
Dick Gregory is eternally relevant and a beacon for social justice. He personifies resilience in the fight for equality and has been steadfast in his commitment to change the racial and economic climates in America. Dick Gregory was on the frontline in the sixties during the Civil Rights Era; today he continues to be a “drum major for justice and equality.”
Like Mr. Gregory, the Urban League of Greater Richmond serves as an advocate for all underserved individuals, families, and communities. Where there are service gaps in our communities, the Urban League strives to fill those gaps.
