Phylicia Rashad and Rev. Willie T. Barrow to Receive the Edwin C. "Bill" Berry Civil Rights Award at the 51st Annual Golden Fellowship Dinner

Best known as mother and attorney Clair Huxtable on the groundbreaking NBC sitcom The Cosby Show, Phylicia Rashad will accept the Edwin C. "Bill" Berry Civil Rights Award at the Chicago Urban League's 51st Annual Golden Fellowship Dinner on November 10, 2012 at the Hilton Chicago at 720 S. Michigan Avenue.


Throughout her prolific and award-winning career, Rashad has set a standard of acting that is rooted in grace, dignity and humanity, resulting in groundbreaking performances that have deeply touched audiences. In 2004, she won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Lena Younger in A Raisin in the Sun, becoming the first black woman to win the coveted honor for a dramatic lead role.


Along with Rashad, Rev. Willie T. Barrow, one of the nation's consummate community organizers and respected Civil Rights leaders, will also be presented with the Edwin C. "Bill" Berry Civil Rights Award. The award is named for Bill Berry, who led the Chicago Urban League from 1956-1969 and was a key leader in the civil rights movement in Chicago.  Both Rashad and Barrow are being presented with the honor for making a mark on the nation through their hard work, perseverance and creativity.
