Story for Turn Me Loose

John Legend and Get Lifted Film Co. present a new comedic drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory--starring Scandal's Joe Morton--that shines a light on the first Black comedian to expose white audiences to racial comedy.

Gregory confronted bigotry with shockingly disarming humor, marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., and deeply influenced comics from Richard Pryor to Chris Rock. He’s been a prolific writer, muckraker, provocateur, candidate for mayor of Chicago and for president of the United States. He was singled out by President Obama as one of his all-time favorite comedians. Experience the comic genius of Dick Gregory and the poetic final words of his mentor, slain civil rights activist, Medgar Evers: “Turn Me Loose.
Extended by Popular Demand Through July 17!
