Phylicia Rashad

Palmer offered her thoughts about Phylicia Rashad's iconic "Cosby Show" character and portrayals of Black women on TV.
Rashad, who serves as the dean of Howard's fine arts college, had tweeted in support of her "Cosby Show" co-star after his sentence was vacated.
The former "Cosby Show" star did not back down from her original comments celebrating the disgraced comedian's release from prison.
“Personal positions of University leadership do not reflect Howard University’s policies,” the school said.
Rashad later attempted to walk back those comments, saying she fully supports "survivors of sexual assault coming forward."
The acclaimed actor said returning to her alma mater for her new role is a "privilege."
The prolific entertainer reflects on her long career, including "Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square," "Grey's Anatomy," "A Different World" and Broadway.
"My mother was determined that her children would not be scarred by this ignorance."
