Description
From the Montgomery bus boycott to the Little Rock Nine and the Selma-Montgomery march, thousands of ordinary people made up the American civil rights movement in its founding decade. Their stories were told in Eyes on the Prize, an Emmy-winning documentary broadcast on PBS in 1987 and hailed as "the principal film account of the most important American social justice movement of the 20th century" (Clayborne Carson). Written in 1987 by Juan Williams with the help of the documentary's production team, the companion volume profiles leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and also lesser-known figures like Barbara Rose John and Jim Zwerg, each of whom made the personal decision that discrimination was wrong and that something had to be done to stop it. This 25th-anniversary edition includes a new preface, introduction by Julian Bond, and epilogue.

"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.... The book stands solidly alone as one of the best available summaries of the period."School Library Journal

"An excellent, highly readable account of black America's struggle for social and political equality, covering the civil rights battle from the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954 to the Selma protest marches and Voting Rights Act of 1965. Williams focuses upon specific key events, providing a narrative overview of each, interspersed with photographs and excerpts from interviews and writings of the participants."Library Journal
