Dick Gregory

Stevie Wonder listens while comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory speaks to the crowds at the dedication ceremony for the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In 1963, Gregory spoke to potential Black voters in Selma to encourage voter registration and, in 1968, he even ran for President of the United States. He earned more than 47,000 votes as a write-in candidate.  (Photo: Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images)
