Publisher Comments:

In this companion to the acclaimed television series "Eyes on the Prize", the authors draw on nearly 1,000 interviews with civil rights activists, politicians, reporters, Justice Department officials, and hundreds of ordinary people who took part in the struggle, to weave a fascinating narrative of the civil rights movement as told by the people who lived it.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [665]-670).

About the Author

Henry Hampton, who died in 1998, was the creator and executive producer of Eyes on the Prize, one of more than 40 film projects he developed with his company Blackside, Inc., the largest African-American-owned film production company of its time. Hampton became one of the world's most respected documentary filmmakers as he chronicled the 20th century's great political and social movements, focusing on the lives of the poor and disenfranchised.

Steve Fayer was the series writer for Eyes on the Prize.
