Washington University (St. Louis, MO 63130-4899)
Joy Novak (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
Eyes on the Prize II Interview Digitization and Dissemination Project

The digitization of 106 hours of raw videotape footage of 182 interviews created in the production of Eyes on the Prize II, the second half of the seminal documentary series that chronicles the civil rights movement from 1965 to 1985.

The Eyes on the Prize II Interview Digitization and Dissemination Project will provide public access for the first time to 182 original complete interviews from the production of Eyes on the Prize: America at the Racial Crossroads 1965-1985.This landmark PBS series tells the complex history of civil rights in the United States in its later years, including the rise of Black nationalism, Northern white resistance to civil rights, and the blossoming of Black Pride. The interviews constitute over 106 hours of previously unavailable footage featuring prominent leaders and unsung grassroots activists. During the two-year project, an outside vendor will create digital video and audio files and initial metadata, and Washington University staff will reassemble the interviews, enhance metadata and create biographies, while a vendor will complete fully-searchable interview transcripts. We will provide online public access to the metadata, transcripts and streaming files of all interviews.
