ID this news man (early 60s 'Meet the Press')


The interviewees apparently have some sort of military connection, as he is asking them about marching. OK, just kidding

I’m drawing a blank on the news man, but I’m pretty sure the interviewee on the right is a guy named Martin Luther King. I don’t think the “march” in question is military …

The interview was just before (and about) the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, seated next to MLK is Roy Wilkins (of the NAACP), and the journalist in question is Frank van der Linden of the Nashville Banner (here’s the YouTube link to the whole? interview).

CMC +fnord!
My GoogleFu is strong!

Kewl! Thanks! (My snippet was featured in the “Bayard Rustin” doc that aired recently on “Logo.”)
