Today In History We Honor Hugh Hefner: Playboy Activist and Rebel
‘Hugh Hefner is a person of substance and anytime I tell someone I love Hugh Hefner, they immediately think, “Oh Yeah The Women.” However it’s not about the women in which I have love for Mr. Hefner, it’s his dedication and passion for equality and justice for all! 
The legendary Alex Haley wrote for Playboy Magazine and during his time there he wrote ‘ROOTS.’ 
Famous comedian Dick Gregory got his major start performing for the Playboy Clubs… When Mr. Hefner heard that his Louisiana club wouldn’t allow Mr. Gregory to perform because he was black, Mr. Hefner brought all his Playboy Clubs back and reopened them allowing Mr. Gregory to perform at them all. 
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s last published article was featured inside Playboy Magazine and the editor was Corretta Scott King. 
Hugh Hefner was the recipient of the NAACP Image Award in the 80s and Jim Brown presented him with the award. 
This is why I love Hugh Hefner.
