Introduction

Greetings, my name is Christian Gregory, I am a chiropractor practicing in Washington, DC. After my father’s death, I decided to take a year off to travel. I intend to celebrate his life while I write and produce. My father was my absolute best friend and confidante. We traveled all over the world together and had a unique bond. My father was a wildly successful, transformative comedian and a Civil Rights Legend. Protecting his legacy is my true focus. While on the road, I will meet and interview his friends, colleagues, and contemporaries, while meeting the professionals that will help my family guard and protect his legacy — a legacy protection officer in a sense. My partner, Melissa whom I’ve loved and adored for my entire life (I’ve known her since she was 5 and I was 6) is a news producer who’s thrived in the industry with long stints of employment with CNN, Fox, and NBC among others. She, like I, is a little burned out. She too took a leave of absence to join me on this journey. She is my lead editor and researcher for the multitude of projects I have attached myself to. Our life is simple and streamlined. We have no children and are both news junkies. We live for intellectual conversation and competition. We understand laughter is good medicine and we laugh incessantly. We are obsessed with “clean” and organic living. It is this aspect of our lifestyle that makes travel difficult. We live in a world of cheap, toxic plastic and synthetic materials full of inorganic particles off-gassing and slowly killing. These materials can cause our cells to mutate, which is the definition of cancer. A disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue.

Preventable disease needs to be prevented.

We love life and enjoy optimal health. The food and beverages we consume and the unadulterated air we breath is paramount and drives decisions about the businesses we patronize. We are so passionate about these hygienic and lifestyle factors that we’ve developed our own scoring system. We use this system to derive at a wellness score. Like the board of health, we plan to apply this algorithm and establish a guide and a score for the business and establishments we patronize. We are elated for you to take this journey with us. See you on the road and stay well!

Dr. Christian Claxton Gregory (Bio) Christian Gregory is the eighth child of Dick and Lillian Gregory. Born in Chicago, he was raised on a 1,000 acre farm in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the pastoral setting and lifelong lessons in wellness spurred his interest in physiology and the mind-body connection. After graduating from Morgan State University, he earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta. Dr. Gregory practiced in Washington for twenty-five years, caring for DC natives, leading entertainment figures, and friends in the movement including Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz, Dorothy Height, Cicely Tyson, and Stevie Wonder. When Dick Gregory decided to resume an active speaking and entertainment schedule, he became his father’s manager. Together they formed Dick Gregory Media, Inc. in 2015. Dr. Gregory’s unique combined experiences in patient care and entertainment management fostered the desire to develop the linkages between activism, communication, the performing arts, and physical well-being. To that end, he established Tower Hill Farm Health & Wellness and Tower Hill Farm Entertainment. Since his passing in 2017, Christian Gregory has managed his father’s estate and intellectual property, and has successfully guided the development of other projects on his father’s life, including the stage play TURN ME LOOSE and the film THE ONE AND ONLY DICK GREGORY.
