(FYI--Universities and local libraries usually have a well stocked video/DVD library. Every university I've been at as a student/instructor has had this video available and I first saw it courtesy of the downtown St Louis library--if you can't go to a screening, check it out from your neighborhood college or library. Another reason to protect and fund your local library. Usually you do not have to attend a university to use their library and to check out materials--you just need a local/state I.D. with your current address and in my experience it is either free or costs a nominal fee.)
'Eyes on the Prize'
Copyright restrictions have kept this important documentary about the Civil Rights movement from the public -- many of the licenses for the news footage, photographs, songs and lyrics in the film expired in 1995 and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to renew. Downhill Battle is organizing screenings across the country this evening.
