Eyes on the Prize
- America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965
- By: Juan Williams, Julian Bond - introduction
- Narrated by: Sean Crisden
- Length: 11 hrs and 5 mins
From leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., to lesser-known figures such as Barbara Rose Johns and Jim Zwerg, each man and woman made the decision that something had to be done to stop discrimination. These moving accounts of the first decade of the civil rights movement are a tribute to the people, black and white, who took part in the fight for justice and the struggle they endured.
This is a must in every household.

Thorough and well performed history
Excellent book. It shows how the Civil Rights movement was so much more than Martin Luther King, Jr. and the other larger name individuals. The performance was very good and never dry. There is an added epilogue that tells what happened to most of the various individuals mentioned in the book up until about 2013 or so.
Great book to listen to in the car on your commute to work or a long road trip.
