Featuring Gregory’s personal reflections, archival footage and interviews with the artists he influenced – including Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Wanda Sykes.

“A very powerful, very moving portrait of him and his work.”
“Like its subject, The One and Only Dick Gregory makes an indelible mark in both history and entertainment.”
The Grio
“A thoughtful film about a politically committed artist that doesn't short the politics or the art, but instead examines how one fueled the other.”
