This emmy award winning series is priased as 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. Early acts of individual courage flower into a mass movement, and eventually split into factions.
