BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (August 6, 2013)—Actor Denzel Washington will narrate a PBS documentary about the 1963 March on Washington for civil rights, the network says.
PBS says Washington has completed taping his narration for the film "The March" which airs on Aug. 27, a day after the 50th anniversary of the march that featured Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
The film includes participants Clarence Jones, a King aide; Joyce Ladner, field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; and Clayborne Carson, a Stanford history professor.
Journalist Roger Mudd, who anchored CBS' dawn-to-dusk coverage of the march, shares his recollections.
