NPR – In 1987, the documentary series “Eyes On The Prize” changed the way Americans remembered the civil rights movement. The 14-part series on PBS covered 30 years of the civil rights movement from Emmett Till to the Black Panthers. It won two Emmy Awards and two Peabody Awards. “Eyes On The Prize” recounted the struggle for civil rights through almost forgotten footage and interviews with people who lived through it.
