Hollywood Round Table @ The March on Washington

This fascinating clip comes courtesy of the National Archives (via its YouTube page).  Seven men--including Marlon Brando, Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, Charlton Heston, and James Baldwin--conduct a round table discussion regarding Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington in August 1963.  The clip is only a couple of minutes in length, consisting of the introduction of the participants, and offers but a taste of what must surely have been an intriguing discussion.  Hopefully, the Archives will make the entire session available online.
