Will Paine College to the right thing and revoke Bill Cosby’s degree?
AUGUSTA, Ga. — The very next college to strip serial rapist Bill Cosby of his honorary degree just may be one of the three HBCUs right here at home.
Paine College indicates that they may strip Mr. Cosby of his honorary degree after he admitted to raping 39 women, 27 of which talked about their harrowing experience on NBC’s Dateline.
According to Interim President Sam Sullivan, those depositions and allegations have led to the Augusta college to consider revoking the 78-year-old’s honorary degree. The comedian performed in Augusta on February 28.
After much pressure and outcry from many Black Americans and feminists alike, Spelman College in Atlanta, Ga. stripped Mr. Cosby of his honorary degree this past spring.
