A Work in Progress
By admin on Mar 31, 2016 | In Performing Arts
The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture issued a statement saying it will continue its plans to feature an exhibit about Bill Cosby, but it will do so with a reference to the accusations of sexual misconduct that hang over the famed comedian's head.
The museum's plans include a section on Mr. Cosby's role as a television entertainer who had been a part of groundbreaking programs. Yet, in light of the allegations made by several women and the legal problems that currently plague him, there had been controversy over his inclusion in the museum.
In a statement issued by museum Founding Director Lonnie Bunch, Mr. Bunch said "our interpretation of Bill Cosby is a work in progress." He further stated that visitors to the museum will learn about Mr. Cosby's impact on American entertainment while also "recognizing that his legacy has been severely damaged by the recent accusations."
