**** Gregory, comedian and civil rights activist, dies
Published August 20, 2017 -- Associated Press

LOS ANGELES –  **** Gregory, the comedian and activist and who broke racial barriers in the 1960s and used his humor to spread messages of social justice and nutritional health, has died. He was 84.

Gregory died late Saturday in Washington, D.C. after being hospitalized for about a week, his son Christian Gregory told The Associated Press. He had suffered a severe bacterial infection.

As one of the first black standup comedians to find success with white audiences, in the early 1960s, Gregory rose from an impoverished childhood in St. Louis to win a college track scholarship and become a celebrated satirist who deftly commented upon racial divisions at the dawn of the civil rights movement.

...It is with great sadness in receiving this news, while understanding that 'None Of Us Is Getting Out Alive!'

It's also sad to know that this great man will not be with us in this new fight...this general of course, would have been the first to fight on the front lines of racial injustice.

Rest In Peace "Brother Gregory!" I'll most certainly miss you!

Thank you for posting this Brother Deacon Ron Gray...

In Peace,

'G'
