LeVar Burton launched his acting career while still a student at the University of Southern California. Since then, he has had many globally-acclaimed roles, including in Roots and Star Trek.

As a lifelong literacy advocate, Burton has dedicated decades to encouraging children to read. In 2017, long-standing literacy nonprofit Reading is Fundamental acquired Burton’s Skybrary reading app in order to provide access to more children. Burton has also partnered with Osmo’s Reading Adventure, Fable and Masterclass to encourage reading and share the power of storytelling.

Burton is the award-winning author of Aftermath, The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm and A Kids Book About Imagination. And, in 2023, Burton premiered a documentary, The Right to Read, which positions the literacy crisis in America as a civil rights issue. Most recently, Burton launched LeVar Burton Entertainment (LBE) with a mission to create content that fosters empathy, champions diversity and builds community.

Burton is an honored recipient of six NAACP Awards, a Peabody, a Grammy and 15 Emmys, including a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Inaugural Children’s & Family Emmys.

At Level Up PTA 2024, we will celebrate the success of our PTAs in making meaningful partnerships and connections with families, educators and community leaders to achieve lasting change that will help every child reach their full potential.
