1968, Dick Gregory was a comedian, political satirist, and social activist for civil rights. His comedic performances not only made people laugh, but mocked the establishment. His 1968 presidential campaign was a piece of political satire. Gregory "ran" for President of the United States in 1968 as a write-in candidate of the Freedom and Peace Party, which had broken off from the Peace and Freedom Party. He garnered 47,097 votes. . . . His efforts landed him on the master list of Nixon's political opponents. (source:wikipedia)
