TULSA, Oklahoma - Actor and comedian Bill Cosby is helping Tulsa's Booker T. Washington High School celebrate its 100th birthday.

Cosby spoke to students there Wednesday about the importance of education and the role fatherhood plays in educating young people.

"I think that the parents somehow, in the neighborhoods, need to take education seriously," Cosby said. "Make people understand, that without education you will not have any idea about entrepreneurship."

Cosby kept a low profile during his visit, only speaking to the media at a news conference.

He made a few other stops while he was in town, including Tulsa's Rotary Club.
