Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Eyes on the Prize Returns!

From the Texas in Africa blog, comes this good news. I hope it leads soon to the availability of DVDS. Schedule viewings with your church youth group. It’s that important.

Eyes on the Prize is coming back to PBS! This is so exciting – the film is the best documentary on the civil rights movement anybody’s made. It’s also been tied up in copyright suits forever, making it impossible to purchase a DVD of the film. Definitely check it out if you get the chance – the first part airs for three consecutive Mondays, starting next week, October 2.

  1. I heard about this on NPR today. They interviews Juan Williams about his book and participation in this project. He said that despite the film’s problems, his book has never been out of print in 20 years. That’s pretty impressive. I am a big Juan Williams fan so I may have to go out and pick up a copy, though I may have to wait for the DVD to come out to see the film.

  2. You can also probably check out the film series in hour-long segments from your local public library. Then you can schedule your youth group to see them and discuss with them.
