ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dick Gregory’s daughter, Ayanna Gregory, honors the Matriarch of the Gregory legacy this Mother’s Day with new music.

Singer, songwriter, and activist Ayanna Gregory is set to release
her latest project this Mother’s Day. “Mama This One’s For
You” is a musical tribute celebrating the life of Lillian Gregory,
the 76-year old mother of 10 and wife of Comedian/Human
Rights activist Dick Gregory. Mrs. Gregory has been a quiet
but powerful freedom fighter. From the early 1960’s throughout
the 1980’s, she was jailed dozens of times in solidarity with various movements,
including the fight against racial inequality in America and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. In 1969, she risked her life internationally to help expose coveted footage from the My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War. Most recently, Mrs. Gregory was seen this past March on TVONE’s Unsung Hollywood, the first TV interview that she’s ever granted.

"For 55 years, my mother has been the life force behind my father. Not only was she taking car of 10 children while Dad was away, she was also one of the pioneers of the Civil Rights movement herself. Like so many other phenomenal women, her name will not be mentioned in the history books, but her courage and sacrifice have impacted this entire planet. It was time for me to properly honor this woman.” – Ayanna Gregory
