Title:Eyes on the prize interviews
Description:

The Eyes on the Prize Interviews collection provides full-text access to transcripts of interviews filmed for the PBS Eyes on the Prize documentary series that premiered January 21, 1987. Eyes on the Prize was produced by Blackside, Inc., the largest African-American-owned film production company of its time. Currently the collection contains the interviews that were conducted for the first six episodes of the series, which provides eye-witness accounts of the American Civil Rights Movement from 1954 to 1965. These interviews are part of the larger Henry Hampton Collection that resides in the Film and Media Archive.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
