From the Soundboard is a show that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Where the artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, September 27 starting @ 3 am, we will pay tribute and focus on civil and human rights activist, social critic, wellness guru and groundbreaking comedian, Dick Gregory.
One of the first African-American comedians to cross over to mainstream white audiences, Dick Gregory was also one of the fiercest sociopolitical satirists of his day; using the nightclub stage as his soapbox, he provocatively explored the racial inequities of the civil rights era with compassion, acute insight, and blunt, direct humor.
