Report - Bill Cosby Exhibition at Smithsonian Museum to Include Sex Assault Allegations


The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which will open their doors in Washington on September 24, revealed that the accusations of sexual assaults made against Bill Cosby will be included along with his achievements. We are certain he loves that!

Lonnie G. Bunch III, the director of the museum, said in a statement, "Visitors will leave the exhibition knowing more about Mr. Cosby’s impact on American entertainment, while recognizing that his legacy has been severely damaged by the recent accusations."

Cosby was hit with sexual assault claims by dozens of women this past year, with the victims claiming the former "Cosby Show" star drugged and raped them. Cosby has denied the allegations.

In his statement on Thursday, Bunch said he disagreed with those who felt that the Smithsonian "should eliminate all mention of Bill Cosby as a result of recent revelations."

Bunch explained, "This is not an exhibition that ‘honors or celebrates’ Bill Cosby but one that acknowledges his role, among many others, in American entertainment."

Cosby's "Taking the Stage" exhibit will highlight his television and comedy accomplishments, along with his alleged dirty deeds. 

Bunch adds, "This museum seeks to tell, in the words of the eminent historian John Hope Franklin, ‘the unvarnished truth’ that will help our visitors to remember and better understand what has often been erased and forgotten. Like all of history, our interpretation of Bill Cosby is a work in progress, something that will continue to evolve as new evidence and insights come to the fore."
