Monday, February 7 at 11:30 am - 1 pm | Ellison Campus Center, MLK Room 

Enjoy lunch while watching this multi-part series that tells the definitive story of the civil rights era from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life, and embodied a struggle whose reverberations continue to be felt today. Winner of numerous awards that include an Emmy, it is the most critically acclaimed documentary on civil rights in America. 

Through contemporary interviews and historical footage, Eyes on the Prize traces the civil rights movement from the Montgomery bus boycott to the Voting Rights Act; from early acts of individual courage through the flowering of a mass movement and its eventual split into factions. Julian Bond, political leader and civil rights activist, narrates.
