UPDATE: This post was liked by the REAL Levar Burton!!! I really hope he becomes the only rightful host of Jeopardy. Then maybe I could convince Angel Boy to become a contestant…
Thirty years ago my Angel Boy entered and won a poetry contest hosted by Reading Rainbow.
My son never watched much TV but he loved to read and he loved Reading Rainbow.
I know I still have the poem he wrote but I couldn’t locate it and didn’t want to tear apart the boxes in his bedroom–yes, I confess…I proudly saved EVERY SINGLE essay, poem, picture, craft, test, report card — from the first day he started kindergarten up until NOW.
What I could easily find, because it’s framed and I can see it every day, is the official photo taken at KPBS studios of the local children who entered the contest.
Somewhere in that group is my fashion-forward Angel Boy.
Since the death of Alex Trebek, no one is no one more qualified or more right for the job of Jeopardy host than Levar Burton.
