Eyes on the Prize Reclaimed

Development of a documentary film about the history and legacy of Eyes on the Prize, the landmark public television series about the civil rights movement.

Eyes on the Prize Reclaimed is the story of African American filmmaker Henry Hampton, the creation of the acclaimed television history of the civil rights movement and its legacy today. The 90-minute documentary will explore the ‘making-of’ Eyes on the Prize, interwoven with the filmmakers’ experiences as civil rights activists. It will explore the series’ significance in teaching generations of Americans about the civil rights movement, and it will measure its lasting impact in light of recent thinking about the movement, in scholarly work and in public sites of memory. The film will be directed by Marco Williams (Two Towns of Jasper) and written by Maia Harris (GI Jews), filmmakers whose previous documentaries have delved deeply into questions of race and civil rights.
