My Conversation With Harrison Ford

This Thursday on PBS, I sit down with Oscar-nominated actor Harrison Ford to talk about his recent role as Brooklyn Dodgers General Manager Branch Rickey in the film, 42.

In the clip below, Harrison reflects on the importance of America coming to terms with racial reconciliation and the humanity and particular genius of black fellow citizens.
