Denzel Washington will narrate a PBS documentary about the 1963 March on Washington for civil rights.

The network told the Television Critics Association on Monday that the actor had just completed taping his narration for the film "The March" airing 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 march participants Clarence Jones, a King aide; Joyce Ladner, field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; and Clayborne Carson, a Stanford history professor. Roger Mudd, who anchored CBS' dawn-to-dusk coverage of the march, will share his recollections.
