Cosby family give generously to Spelman College

Tue, 1988-10-04

On this date in 1988, Bill and Camille Cosby gave a generous gift to a Historically Black College. The Cosbys made a $20 million gift to Spelman College in Atlanta.

In July 2015, a college official says The William and Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Endowed Professorship will be discontinued and all remaining funds returned. Over the years and the school acknowledged his contribution by honoring him at various times.
It's the latest in an avalanche of back turns and changes of heart in the wake of the various sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby.
