CATEGORIES OF THIS FILM
As the movement's front lines moved from the courts to confrontations in daily life, college students led the way. This video follows the effort to integrate society beyond the campus. When blacks and whites rode buses together as freedom riders, the violence that erupted turned America's attention to civil rights as never before.
When Eyes on the Prize premiered in 1987, The Los Angeles Times called it ""an exhaustive documentary that shouldn't be missed."" The series went on to win six Emmys and numerous other awards, including an Academy Award nomination, the George Foster Peabody Award, and the top duPont-Columbia award for excellence in broadcast journalism.
