However, like each one of us, Cosby is not all darkness. When Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated, Coretta Scott King recalls that of the many who came to comfort, it was Bill Cosby's visit which was "the most touching".
Cosby arrived uninvited at Mrs. King's home. He brought with him his actor colleague, Robert Culp. At the time, both men were famous for being an integrated team in the hit TV program "I Spy". Mrs. King says neither Cosby nor Culp asked to see her but, seeing her frightened, lonely sons, "spent most of the afternoon playing with my boys, because they felt that this was the best contribution they could make."
