The leaders of the Black movement in the United States generally seem to be skilled rhetoricians. These leaders seem to emulate the same oharaoteristics in the use of rhetoric as did the statesmen who engineered the American Revolution. One notable exception seems to be a young Black named Dick Gregory. He seems to have found a means of persuasion that is far removed from his colleagues. His weapon is wit, and combined with dedication and honesty it helps make his rhetoric one of the most persuasive and unusual of the Black spokesmen.
