The 'Little Picasso' Dreaming Of Asylum In Serbia

This is about the artist himself, but also about much more than his life: "The story of Farhad — a smart, lanky boy — is more than an unexpected bright light in grim circumstances.

Gregory, who was often mentioned with Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl as satirists of the first order in the 1960s, at first thought that humor would win over more white people than activism, but gradually changed his mind - and his routine.
