Larger than life, ex-convict Petey Greene burst onto the airwaves in the 1960s with raw and uncensored radio and TV shows on racism, poverty, sexuality and drug abuse, awakening Washington, D.C.’s African American community to the power of “telling it like it is.” ADJUST YOUR COLOR: The Truth of Petey Greene chronicles the life and times of America’s first shock jock, a man who spoke the truth to people in power and influenced a new generation of broadcast personalities.
