Book Title: Nigger : An Autobiography

Author: Dick Gregory

Book Description:

By 1964, Dick Gregory lifted himself out of deep poverty, became a successful comedian, and joined the civil rights movement in the South. Among many things, his autobiography illustrates how, at least on a personal level, humor can overcome bigotry and hatred. Nigger is one of the most memorable books I have ever read.
