KANSAS CITY — Entertainer and activist Bill Cosby is coming to a Kansas City high school to take part in a panel discussion on bullying, conflict resolution, proper attire and other issues.
The forum takes place April 1 at the Hickman Mills School District's Ruskin High School in south Kansas City. The Kansas City Star reports the event is sponsored by One Goal Consultants and is not open to the public.
In a statement released by the district, Cosby said the discussion will focus less on problems than solutions.
Cosby has offended some leaders and parents in African-American communities with his comments about the behavior of black teenagers.
His career is one of the most successful in television history and peaked with "The Cosby Show" in the mid-1980s and early 1990s.
