New Sacramento Park Named After LeVar Burton

Emmy and Peabody Award-winner LeVar Burton now has a park named for him in Sacramento, California. Burton spoke at the dedication event in his hometown, and said he hopes his accomplishments inspire other kids in the area. Burton’s known for his award-winning children’s show “Reading Rainbow,” as well as his roles in “Roots” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” He joked that usually only dead people have parks named after them, and he’s happy to report he’s still alive and kicking.
