I saw this documentary miniseries as a child numerous times on PBS around or on Black History month. Also my public school would show this PBS series during school throughout the years along with ROOTS (during the 1980's & 1990's). I would love to purchase this BOXED DVD set despite its over 400 dollar price tag. I feel that minorities & "all" children in America should be EDUCATED on "BLACK HISTORY" especially since we now have a African American President. Maybe then America as a "whole" can better understand why the ELECTION of our FIRST BLACK President is such a HISTORICAL event well worth celebrating & watching this documentary (which should be mandatory in all schools/Educational facilities) it would shine light on the STRUGGLE & HARDSHIPS people have faced just for MINORITIES to have EQUAL RIGHTS in this country today. So many people suffered & died just for us to have equal rights in this country. I STRONGLY encourage parents & teachers to purchase this DVD or even the VHS BOX SET of EYES ON THE PRIZE. It is VERY EDUCATIONAL & INSPIRING. If your local schools or private schools aren't teaching BLACK HISTORY courses/classes, just do like I do-I purchase these DVDs & bring them into my home to educate my 10 year old daughter on Black History. As she gets older I will more than gladly invite her friends & the students into my home to view these documentaries during BLACK HISTORY month. In conclusion I feel that this particular DVD should be produced, & curculated more than it actually is. It is REALLY DIFFICULT to find EYES ON THE PRIZE- DVD BOXED SET & when you do find it, it has a HUGE price tag on it for well over $400.00? I realize it is a 6 DVD series set, but c'mon that price is REDICULOUS! I figure each DVD should cost about $29.Read more ›

Verified Purchase
It really really sucks that I had to pay so much money for only 6 CDs. But, I had to buy this. The deal breaker for me was when I saw a controversial clip from the series removed from youtube only days after watching it. I fear that it will eventually be unavailable. If you can afford it, support it. It is very educational. If you can't, I understand.

This is a wonderful DVD set - FYI it has been re-released and can be purchased from Time-Life for $39.99 the whole six hour program. I have always had a deep interest in the Civil Rights Movement and really wanted this documentary................I just didn't want to have to refinance my house to do it!!

This video set is definitely a must have and required viewing for students and those who must know our history. That being said, I am having a hard time figuring out why it's so much on Amazon. That's robbery! I found and bought a 3-disc set on eBay for maybe $12 total! I would love to have the whole set, but will not be taken advantage of when you can even find it on Time-Life for much less! Don't take advantage of people. That is beyond wrong!

Season 2 is the most explosive of the series and also the one you can't find unless in a $400 plus box set. This is done to INTENTIONALLY keep Blacks from knowing their history...And by keeping them in the dark, they are destined to repeat it
