While the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed crowds at the 1963 March on Washington, an aspiring actor named Morgan Freeman was working at a post office in San Francisco.

"Profiling is still a big problem we have here," adds Freeman, responding to a question about how the case of Trayvon Martin's shooting and others like it have impacted the discussion of race in America.
