  1. If you ever want to watch a good documentary about race, ethnicity, and the civil rights movement, the “Eyes on the Prize” series is great.

  2. I have actually been hearing good things about it lately. I really want to access Eyes on the Prize II, but apparently it has never been released on DVD. The first one has though, and it’s in my Netflix cue!

  3. I would check the libraries around where you are, especially the university ones. They might have the full series.
