It is remarkable how relevant this still is. Remarkable and unfortunate. Also, it still hits very hard. I give Dick Cavett a lot of credit here in that what Baldwin is saying was far more controversial back then. Many hosts of the day wouldn’t even allow for this conversation. I’ve always liked Dick Cavett. I saw the premiere of “Cavett and Ali the tale of the tapes.“ At SXSW. He and Muhammad Ali were very good friends. It’s worth watching.
