Publisher's Summary

From the Montgomery bus boycott to the Little Rock Nine to the Selma-Montgomery march, thousands of ordinary people participated in the American civil rights movement; their stories are told in Eyes on the Prize.

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.

America at its lowest and it’s finest.

This amazing chronicle should not be limited as only Black History, but categorized as American History.

Great book

As a biracial man I was struggling to find ways to build on my black culture, this book provided me a great foundation.

It's a textbook.

This is quite a good book. It's very straightforward in its approach and while Juan Williams has a very particular perspective, he is honest and intelligent although he does avoid certain topics that he didn't doesn't want to include. Such as there are virtually no black militants in the Civil Rights Movement for according to Juan Williams.

Also the recording is plagued with technical errors, it skips very often, especially at the beginning of sentences and at the beginning of chapters.

Great book .... poor narration

Great book... well worth the listen. However, it is let down by the narration...... he talks too quickly... has no idea about a pause at a comma or a longer pause at a full stop.
I listened to the book at 0.8x speed!!
