Turn Me Loose (Washington D.C.)

Emmy Award winner Joe Morton stars in this comedic drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory, 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.
