Watch: The Late Bob Simon's Recent '60 Minutes' Piece on 'Selma'

Best Picture nominee "Selma" was profiled recently on CBS news-entertainment program "60 Minutes" by longtime correspondent Bob Simon, who was killed yesterday in a car crash. For the piece, Simon met with director Ava DuVernay in Alabama, where the film was shot and where the real-life events it depicts occurred. Combining interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, film footage and news footage from the original marches, the video is an excellent primer for those interested in how "Selma" honors and interprets history, Martin Luther King’s legacy and importance today, and an example of Simon’s curiosity and humor.
