Comedian Bill Cosby delivered a motivational message to students in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday (08May11) in a bid to boost spirits following the recent devastating tornadoes.
Storms swept across six southern states last month (Apr11), and the worst damage occurred in Alabama, where more than 200 people died.
Cosby visited Birmingham's Miles College on Sunday to speak to graduates and he encouraged them to come together to help rebuild communities.
He said, "Think about what is needed in your neighbourhoods and go about your entrepreneurial self. Work it, rebuild it. This is Alabama. This is you."
