Dr Conway wrote his dissertation, Moderated Militants in the Age of Black Power: The Memphis NAACP, 1968-1975, under the direction of Dr Aram Goudsouzian. It is a study of the Memphis NAACP and Black community protest during the critical but often overlooked period after the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., during the period 1968-1975, years in which the organization led three major campaigns: the Ghetto Development Project, Black Monday protest, and the school busing initiative.
After this incident, Cosby remained silent about these claims. More women soon came forth to claim that the comedian attacked them as well, including model Janice Dickinson. She told Entertainment Tonight that Cosby gave her wine and some type of pill before he allegedly raped her. These accusations led both NBC and Netflix to announce that they were dropping projects that they had with Cosby, with cancellations to come as well for his 2015 stand-up tour. Cosby did not respond directly to the claims. After a National Public Radio interview with Cosby in November 2014, a lawyer said in a statement that the comedian "won't dignify these allegations with any response."
Unfortunately, my wife hates football. I’ve been trying to badger her into going to the game with me since A) it’s my birthday (and I got her GNR tickets to Cincinnati for her birthday last year) and B) we always have fun on road trips. She keeps turning me down, whining that football sucks. I told her all she had to do was sit in her seat and drink booze while she played on her phone for three hours, if she so desired. Still no luck. As fate would have it, she recently found out that Nelly (yes, that Nelly) is coming to town this fall. My wife asked if I would go with her and, even though I hate Nelly, I said I would, if she would go to the Cardinals game with me. Her response was, “That’s a lot of ask of me.”
