From Theater Mania:
Bill Cosby will be among the honorees at the 9th annual Ivy Bethune Tri-Union Diversity Awards, to be held at the Nate Holden Theatre Center in Los Angeles on Monday, November 7. Kim Coles will serve as host.
The awards are determined by the affirmative action committees of American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Screen Actors Guild and Actors' Equity Association. They celebrate individuals and organizations in the performing arts that have taken an active stand to make a difference toward a more representational, multicultural community by helping build a foundation for diversity within the industry.
Cosby was chosen by SAG for his groundbreaking work as a performer and for his dedication to educating future generations.
Mr. Cosby is well-deserving of this honor. With all the criticism he's taken in recent years, I'm glad to see that some people haven't forgotten that.
