Re “Actor Tony D. Cosby, who portrayed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in area productions for decades, dies at 66,” Free Press Sept. 2-4 edition:
Tony Cosby made a significant contribution to the struggle for equal justice in Virginia. His dramatic portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. brought Dr. King alive in such productions of “I Have a Dream” and “Malcolm X Meets Martin Luther King Jr.”
Richmonders will mourn the passing of this great performer.
