Abstract:

"From the Montgomery bus boycott to the Little Rock Nine to the Selma-Montgomery march, thousands of ordinary people made up the American civil rights movement; their stories are told in Eyes on the prize. From leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., to lesser-known participants like Barbara Rose Johns and Jim Zwerg, each man and woman made the decision that discrimination was wrong and that something had to be done to stop it. These moving accounts and pictures of the first decade of the civil rights movement are a tribute to -- and a reminder of -- the people, black and white, who took part in the fight for justice, keeping their eyes on the prize of freedom."--Book cover.
