The comedic legend collected an award for outstanding childrens' media.
Comedic legend Bill Cosby paid a visit to Tufts University Friday morning to collect an award, and, of course, crack a few jokes too. Cosby, along with educator and social commentator Alvin F. Poussaint from Harvard University, were honored at the fifth annual Eliot-Pearson Awards for Excellence in Children's Media at Distler Performance Hall at Tufts. The awards are given every two years to recognize innovation, diversity, non-violence and developmentally appropriate media for children, according to the release from university spokeswoman Katie Cinnamond. Cosby's work in children and family media includes his sit-com "The Cosby Show," children interview show "Kids Say the Darndest Things," and cartoons "Fat Albert" and "Little Bill."
