However, why the COMPLETE documentary (4 discs) Eyes on the Prize - America at the Crossroads 1965-1985 has yet to be sold separately or shown on PBS since the original broadcast is a mystery.
I am one of the lucky ones who taped and transferred to dvd-R, the ENTIRE series many, many years ago.
This program is what should have been shown during Black History Month to all! New American citizens and the young, who missed the first PBS showing, and those from foreign lands would greatly benefit from the rich history and perhaps understand their African-Americans neighbors a little better.
This type of knowledge should be shared with everyone young and old, as well as in the classroom setting. Fast forward to today when I heard Judi Hampton on the radio, the sister of the late Henry Hampton's (Maker of the film) on the Warren Ballentine show speaking about the film being available April 6th 2010. Finally instead just reading about the Civil Rights movement which is a great start, my 7 year old daughter can now see actual footage of what transpired during that time, raw and uncut. Thank you Henry & Judi Hampton for providing this necessary and unique material which can be shared with many generations.
If you ever wanted to know what really went on during the Civil Rights Movement of the 50's and 60's, don't ask or read a book.Read more ›
