Television has a profound impact on our culture and sometimes it can be hard to separate real-life actors from the characters they play on the screen. Take The Cosby Show. For those of us that watched it in the 1980s, Bill Cosby WAS Cliff Huxtable — a loving father who could dole out tough advice.

We talk with a senior editor from Ebony magazine about an article called “Cosby vs. Cliff,” and the new issue’s controversial cover. Also, we get the lowdown on the latest One Book One Chicago pick and a preview of this year’s the Third Coast Filmless Fest.
