Hour B, Segment 2

Weekend Exclusive | Notable Speech: Charlton Heston at Harvard in 1999

Charlton Heston was an actor and social activist. He came to prominence in Hollywood in the 1950s, starring in films such as The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur. On the social activism front, Mr. Heston was closely involved in the fight to guarantee civil rights for black Americans in the 1960s. In the 1990s, he was elected president of the NRA and spoke often on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

But the speech highlighted in this segment represents another type of social activism with which Charlton Heston became closely identified: Speaking out on the co-called culture war in America.
