The best thing about “Cosby: The Women Speak” is the way it is structured. The public career of comedian and entertainer Bill Cosby unfolded in front of the American audience in a high-profile and visible narrative—“I Spy,” stand-up, Jell-O commercials, “The Cosby Show.” A black comedian becoming a symbol of a multiracial, forward-thinking, freer America, largely while wearing a dad sweater and goofing around. When the rape allegations against him started, the women accusing him could not find an audience because no one was willing to listen.
