Richard Claxton Gregory    1932-2017

 

pioneering black satirist

who transformed cool humor

into a barbed force

for civil rights in the 1960s,

then veered from his craft

for a life devoted

to protest and fasting

in the name

of assorted social causes,

health regimens

and conspiracy theories
