I HIGHLY recommend this book to everybody interested. I met the late Mr. Gregory when I was a student at Morgan State University, and he changed my life. Reading this book has made me the man that I am, realizing that in life, great people are destined to be who they are suppose to be, and they keep great company.

This is my first book by Dick Gregory and I found it a great read. The book offers an engaging perspective on American race relations through the civil rights movement, specifically his involvement in the civil rights movement. Dick Gregory met and interacted with most of the well not civil rights movement leaders, so reading his recount was quite enjoyable. The part on his upbringing was quite both emotional and inspiring. All in all, if you've experienced and liked Dick Gregory, then you'll appreciate this book.

Great inspirational read from a celebrity who has went above and beyond for not only people of color but for all who are truth and justice. We should all hope to run our own race in life with passion, love and endurance as Mr. Gregory.

This book is worth the read. I read it in one week. I am more likely gonna read it again. This book actually changed my view and opened my eyes to so much. I'm forever grateful for Dick Gregory for it.
Dick Gregory is a brave soul He writes with his heart and is not afraid of the facts regarding the issues of life especially for the African-American. The heritage of the Black race and all of the social, economic, and political issues have not been equal. Hats off the Mr. Gregory. He is just as powerful in his writing as Dr. Martin Luther King was vocally.
