Synopsis

Bill Cosby Entertainer and Activist by Sonya Kimble-Ellis

Bill Cosby began his career as a comedian while he was still a college student. A talented athlete who could have become a track star, Cosby believed that his knack for telling jokes could earn him a living. After dropping out of school, he began appearing in clubs in New York and Las Vegas, where his comedic talents quickly became apparent. His stand-up routines, films, books, and creation of and work on the TV cartoon Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids and the wildly popular sitcom The Cosby Show have secured his place as one of the greatest comedians in entertainment history. In addition to entertaining audiences, Cosby is also highly regarded as a philanthropist and community activist. Read about the one-and-only Bill Cosby in this all-new biography that highlights his contributions to American society and his influence on generations of black Americans.
