Free screening! Henry Hampton’s definitive and acclaimed documentary series chronicles the civil rights era from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions helped alter the fabric of American life. Hampton presents a massive collection of archival footage as well as in-depth interviews to provide context, a remarkable level of detail, and access into the history of this movement. Winner of numerous Emmy Awards, a George Foster Peabody Award, and an International Documentary Award, Eyes on the Prize is the most critically acclaimed documentary on civil rights in America. We will screen two episodes that follow Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. from his most famous speech, given during the March on Washington, to the passing of the Voting Rights Act.
