CATEGORIES OF THIS FILM
Why had nonviolent protest worked in some places and not others? This video pursues this question in places where children were being chased by police dogs and knocked to the ground with blasts from fire hoses. It captures a time when many people chose sides in the struggle and paid the highest price.
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.
