    • EYES ON THE PRIZE: THEN AND NOW is a half-hour special that re-examines the groundbreaking documentary series, Eyes on the Prize, from the filmmakers’ perspective, and the viewpoint of civil rights activists then and now. This intergenerational dialogue takes the civil rights movement and places it under a microscope – revisiting, reframing and re-asking key questions while contextualizing those issues in a contemporary way.

      Featuring interviews with Eyes on the Prize filmmakers, thought leaders, current day activists, scholars, and civil rights leaders, this special explores how far we’ve come, how far we have yet to go, the meaning and significance of the ongoing struggle, and the next steps towards equality. Narrated by music artist Aloe Blacc.
