In 2011 Mr. Cosby was featured in an article by
Becky
Robinette Wright
in the January issue of Richmond's  
FIFTY
PLUS magazine entitled;

Richmond resident honors Martin Luther King Jr

In the article Mr. Cosby is quoted as saying,
"All my life I've admired King. I had this little thing I did...it
would be a reading of King's speeches. But it was just a
reading. Then Rev, Odie Brown of Second Baptist Church
on Idlewood Avenue asked me to do a reading of the, I HAD
A DREAM  speech.
Something happened while doing the speech and not only
did I speak the speech, but I re-enacted the mannerisms of
King. Afterwards people came up to me and said I sounded
just like King. It began to take off from there."
