Brando said he visited the Mayor to discuss the report of the President’s Advisory commission on Civil Disorders. Part of Brando’s coming to Harlem was an invite from friend and Harlemite Harry Belafonte who had rallied other Hollywood chums like Paul Newman and Charlton Heston to put their names to the Civil Rights movement.
