Levar Burton

LeVar Burton is a beloved American actor, author, and literacy advocate, celebrated for his iconic role as the host of the long-running educational program “Reading Rainbow.” Born on February 16, 1957, in Landstuhl, West Germany, he has made a lasting impact on generations of children and adults alike.


Burton’s career took off with his portrayal of Kunta Kinte in the groundbreaking miniseries “Roots,” which earned him widespread acclaim. However, he is perhaps best known for his 21-year tenure as the host of “Reading Rainbow,” where he fostered a love of reading in countless young minds.


His advocacy for literacy and education extends beyond the screen, with Burton actively promoting the importance of reading and learning. He founded RRKidz, Inc., to continue the legacy of “Reading Rainbow” in the digital age.


As an influential storyteller and advocate, LeVar Burton’s passion for literacy and learning continues to inspire and empower individuals of all ages to explore the world through the pages of a book, leaving an enduring mark on education and the joy of reading.
