Defining Moments in Black History: Reading Between the Lies, the important last book by the legendary Dick Gregory, has won the 2018 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work of Nonfiction. The win was announced on Sunday, January 14th at a pre telecast gala dinner along with the announcement of a number of other award-winners in the categories of music, film, and television.
Regina Brooks, literary agent to Dick Gregory, is proud to have been a part of such an amazing project, and to have worked so closely with Dick, someone she was honored to call a friend. She and the entire Serendipity family want to say congratulations to all who made this book possible, including the Gregory family, HarperCollins and Amistad, especially Tracy Sherrod, who edited the book, attorneys Rosalind Ray and Ricky Anderson, and Professor Clifford Thompson.
Christian Gregory, Dick's son, who played a huge role in bringing this project to life, posted a heartwarming and memorable message to commemorate the victory here.
