Actor Bill Cosby will be inducted into the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s Image Awards Hall of Fame during “The 38th NAACP Image Awards,” Image Awards executive producer Vicangelo Bulluck announced Thursday.

Mr. Cosby has received two previous NAACP awards, for outstanding performance in a youth or children’s series/special for “Little Bill” and outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for “The Cosby Show.”

“Cosby is a true humanitarian and role model in the entertainment world,” awards chair Clayola Brown said. “His use of raceless humor became his trademark and attracted wide audience appeal.”

The “38th NAACP Image Awards” will air live March 2, 2007, on Fox.
