Richard Claxton Dick Gregory is an American civil rights activist, social critic, writer, entrepreneur, and comedian. Gregory was a poor student who excelled at running, and was aided by teachers at Sumner High School, among them Warren St. James. Gregory earned a track scholarship to Southern Illinois University Carbondale. There he set school records as a half-miler and miler. His college career was interrupted for two years in 1954 when he was drafted into the U.S. Army. The Army was where he got his start in comedy, entering and winning several Army talent shows at the urging of his commanding officer, who had taken notice of Gregorys penchant for joking. In 1956, Gregory briefly returned to SIU after his discharge, but dropped out because he felt that the university didnt want me to study, they wanted me to run.
