HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER PARTNERS WITH CHICAGO-BASED EDUCATIONAL SERVICES ORGANIZATION TO HELP INNER CITY STUDENTS SUCCEED IN LIFE


Baron Jay Littleton, Jr.

Toluca Lake, CA (BlackNews.com) - African-American actor, film producer, publisher, and entrepreneur Baron Jay Littleton, Jr. is joining forces with Chicago's Unparalleled Solutions, Inc., to stage a motivational speaking tour of eight inner city Chicago schools. During the tour, scheduled for March 23-26, Littleton will coach students in how to pitch their ideas and inventions through role-playing exercises that build self-confidence. He will also hand out and sign copies of his inspirational books, African American Inventions and Inventors and Latino Contributions to Society and the World.

Unparalleled Solutions, Inc., founded in 1992, contracts with 35 Chicago inner city schools, grades 1 - 12, to offer educational services including math and reading tutoring. The organization, which employs 250 college-trained tutors, was certified in 2004 as a Supplemental Educational Service provider by the state of Illinois, and in 2008 was ranked number one in math tutoring and third in reading tutoring among Chicago's 79 tutoring organizations. According to founder Venetia Clark, a Chicago-based pharmacist, Littleton's motivational tour is right in step with her organization's goals.

"These kids need to see role models like Baron, who stands as living proof that they can realize their own dreams," Clark commented.

Littleton's motivational inner city school appearances are:

MONDAY, MARCH 23, 2009:
1PM SHOOP SCHOOL @ 11140 S. BISHOP

Littleton recently completed Safe House, a feature suspense thriller he produced and played a leading role in. He and screenwriter Robert Rivenbark are collaborating to secure financing for Every Move Counts, a feature biopic about Atlanta-based chess master Orrin Hudson, who risks everything to teach chess and critical thinking skills to at-risk youth, encouraging them to look for meaning in a chess board and realize--before it's too late--that in chess as in life, Every Move Counts.
