James Earl Jones in Huntsville Thursday

Legendary actor James Earl Jones is coming to Huntsville Thursday for a special cause.

The man, who is the voice behind Darth Vader's mask, will read to students at Hampton Cove Elementary School .

The event will launch a statewide partnership between the Verizon Foundation's Thinkfinity.org and the Alabama Department of Education's Alabama Learning Exchange.

The two organizations will bring innovative online education resources to teachers, parents and students free of charge.
