|American Experience: Eyes on the Prize|
Sunday, April 4, 8:00 PM, Ch 36.2
Eyes on the Prize recounts the fight to end decades of discrimination and segregation. It is the story of the people — young and old, male and female, northern and southern — who, compelled by a meeting of conscience and circumstance, worked to eradicate a world where whites and blacks could not go to the same school, ride the same bus, vote in the same election, or participate equally in society. It was a world in which peaceful demonstrators were met with resistance and brutality — in short, a reality that is now nearly incomprehensible to many young Americans.
This five-part series will be run on the World Channel. Check the schedule for dates of subsequent episodes.
