So, Bill Cosby Isn't Dead, Well That's Nice.

Anyway, this LP from back in 67 looks rather more avant-garde than I would expect from the guy.

Awhile back I read an excellent article from Ta-Nehisi Coates, describing how Cosby's recent turn as professional scold was basically Black nationalism stripped of the esoteric trappings of Garvey or Elijah Mohammad. And that White conservatives who praised Cosby for finally being a Black man willing to publicly speak truth to the Black community had basically no clue of what they were praising.

Just thought I'd mention.
