If you ever thought that Dave Chappelle might be slowing down with comedy specials, think again. Yesterday, Chappelle along with several prestigious honorees would receive an award from Harvard for contributions to black culture. As mentioned, Dave would share the same honor with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick who also was in attendance for the respected event. While on stage to receive his WEB DuBois Medal, Chappelle would hint that a new special could be soon upon us. “I’m not going to hang up my gloves yet…I think I have one more special in me,” Dave would tell the crowd before ending his speech.
Check out Dave’s full acceptance speech below as discusses his upbringing and James Baldwin’s influence on his life. Should Dave return with another special next year?
