TODAY IN BLACK HISTORY - Feb. 16
Roots. Reading Rainbow. Star Trek: The Next Generation. Need I say more? Actor, Director, Producer and literacy activist Levar Burton was born on February 16, 1957. Check out this great NPR interview with Mr. Burton where he talks about the end of Reading Rainbow after over 20 years of instilling a love of books in children around the world. As an avid Star Trek fan (nerd alert: my mom and I have seen every TNG episode multiple times), I have truly enjoyed Levar Burton's work for many years. So, today in Black History we celebrate the birth of a great actor and icon.
