Bill Cosby

Happy birthday, Bill Cosby! Today the beloved actor and comedian turns 76. In the 1960s, he helped break down racial barriers on television in the series I Spy, becoming the first African American actor to star in a dramatic role on television. Perhaps his most successful and memorable television role was Cliff Huxtable on the long-running family comedy series The Cosby Show. Do you remember watching the show?

Did you know when Cosby was young, he served in the U.S. Navy? He served as a Hospital Corpsman for four years in physical therapy with some seriously injured Korean War casualties.
