From Publishers Weekly
Assisted by the production team for the PBS-TV series on which this book is based, Washington Post national correspondent Williams recounts in detail the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement. PW noted that he "singles out the stories of the little-known activists."

From School Library Journal
YAEyes On the Prize is an outstanding contribution to the memory of the lessons of the Civil Rights Movement. Williams brings the events of the nonviolent civil rights years to life with photographs and lucid text, as well as brief asides interspersed throughout to provide participants' perspectives. Written in conjunction with the production team of the PBS-TV series of the same name, the book uses still photography, which provides different insights than the film footage of the same events shown on television. While the two could be used together, the book stands solidly alone as one of the best available summaries of the period. Dorcas Hand, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
