On Tuesday night I'm joined by Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Emmy winner Kevin Costner. The veteran actor and director has starred in some of Hollywood's most beloved films, including Field of Dreams and ​Dances With Wolves. In his new project, Black or White, he plays a grandfather who finds himself in a custody battle over his biracial granddaughter.

In the clip below, Kevin describes the powerful reaction he had upon first reading the thought-provoking script.
