LEVAR BURTON PARK
In my lifetime I’ve met a couple of famous people. Some good, some bad but I’d return all the meetings and advice to met one man, my namesake Mr. LeVar Burton. From Reading Rainbow, to Jordi LaForge to recreating the series that made him famous Burton has been not just an advocate for reading but knowledge and history in general, especially when it comes to our people and he inspires me to this DAY!
The Sacramento CA native was just recently honored by his city with a 3 acre PARK renamed in his honor. The PARK includes a fitness area, jungle gym, urban garden and a volleball and basketball court.
