Basic Black After the Broadcast: The Unmaking of an Icon?

November 21, 2014

After the broadcast, the panelists conversation about the allegations of  sexual assault against Bill Cosby intensified.  There have been varying reports about the number of women coming forward who say Cosby raped them, but as Michael Jeffries reminds us, the number of women is beside the point, "…one is too many."

Panelists:

- Latoyia Edwards, anchor, NECN

- Phillip Martin, senior reporter, WGBH News

- Kim McLarin, cultural commentator and Assistant Professor of Writing, Emerson College

- Michael Jeffries, Associate Professor of American Studies, Wellesley College

- Julio Varela, journalist and founder, Latino Rebels
