Central State University covers up Cosby's name on campus building

csu-bill-cosby_zpsd2rnlgog.jpgWILBERFORCE, OH. - Central State University, an Historically Black College and University, located in Wilberforce, Ohio, is in the process of taking Bill Cosby name from on of its building after they covered up his name on a campus sign in front of the building. The school's Mass Communication Center is named after Cosby and his wife.

According to source, the university spokeswoman Edwina Blackwell told the Dayton Daily News that the school has covered up Cosby's name on a sign in front of the Camille O. and William H. Cosby Mass Communication Center. She also says that the move is in response to the accusations swirling around the comedian. Cosby is accused of raping several woman after drugging them. The allegations date back to the 1970s although Cosby has never been charged.

Cosby recently admitted to giving sedatives to at least one of his accusers. The excerpts indicate that Cosby gave Quaalude to the women he pursued for 'extramarital sex'.

The university said earlier this week that covering the sign is an "interim step" and leaders are considering changing the name of the building. "It it a temporary action until we make a final decision in September," said University Spokeswoman Edwina Blackwell-Clark according to source.

Blackwell-Clark also stated that the Board of Trustees will make the final call. The Cosby name remains on the communications building in the meantime.

In university history, The Cosby family has donated more than $1 million to the university.
