Summary
"Eyes on the Prize is an award-winning six-hour documentary series on the civil rights movement that brilliantly illuminates the struggle for racial equality and social justice ... the series uses compelling human stories to engage viewers in the landmark events of 1954 to 1965. Henry Hampton, the creator and executive producer of the series, is recognized as one of the world's most acclaimed documentary filmmakers. Using words and perspectives from people who were determined to make our nation live up to its promise of equality, Eyes on the Prize teaches essential lessons about race, leadership, and justice for all."--Container notes
