YR 1988 AB "In the 'Postscript' program submitted for review, we look back at the Civil Rights era. One segment is an interview with Henry Hampton, executive producer of the PBS series, 'Eyes on the Prize'. The majority of the program is an interview with James Meredith, who, nearly 26 years ago, integrated the University of Mississippi. ... In the interview, he admits he knew then the Civil Rights Movement would not help blacks but he did not speak out. ... Feeling that blacks are worse off today, Meredith feels he did nothing of which his people should be proud."--1988 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. In the interview with James Meredith, he recounts his experiences in trying to desegregate Mississippi's colleges through the law suits and his eventual enrollment at the University of Mississippi, and what, if anything, he accomplished. He talks about racial unrest on today's college campuses and the inequality that still exists in our society. The program includes footage of Meredith and some of the events surrounding his enrollment at the University of Mississippi as well as footage of news conferences with Gov. Ross Barnett and also with Meredith, after his enrollment. In the interview with Henry Hampton, he discusses the making of the documentary Eyes on the prize, why he made it, and the problems he had getting interviews for the program with reluctant segregationists. Includes footage from Eyes on the prize and ends with the weekly calendar feature, giving a listing of upcoming events of local interest.
