I eagerly await the conclusion to this series when the next set comes out on DVD.
Remarkably, while Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is the well known figure-head of the movement, this piece highlights so many of the unsung soldiers of the "movement" who many never knew or perhaps have forgotten.
A person of history will want to have this as part of their library collection.
A collector will also want to purchase the companion book which completes the set. Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965 (African American History (Penguin))
