  • "A comprehensive documentary on America's civil rights movement focusing on the issues, the personalities and the events. Focuses on the years 1960 and 1961. Lunch counter sit-ins, the formation of SNCC, the 1960 Presidential campaign and the freedom rides are chronicled."
  • ""Ain't' scared of your jails" chronicles the courage displayed by thousands of young people and college students who joined the ranks of the civil rights movement and gave it new direction. In 1960, lunch counter sit-ins spread across the South, many organized by the new, energetic Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). In 1961, on the Freedom Rides, many young people faced violence and defied death threats as they labored to obliterate segregation in interstate bus travel below the Mason-Dixon Line. The growing movement toward racial equality influenced the 1960 Presidential campaign, and federal rights versus states' rights became an issue."
  • ""No easy walk" presents the emergence of mass demonstrations and marches as means of protest for the civil rights movement, and shows the effects of such tactics in Albany, Ga., Birmingham, Ala., and Washington, D.C."
  • ""Ain't scared of your jails" presents college student involvement in the civil rights movement. The program focuses on four related stories: the lunch counter sit-ins of 1960; the formation of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC); the impact of the movement on the 1960 presidential campaign, and the freedom rides of 1961."
  • ""No easy walk" focuses on a crucial phase in the civil rights movement: the emergence of mass demonstrations and marches as a powerful protest vehicle. In Albany, Ga., police chief Laurie Pritchett challenged Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s tactics of nonviolent mass demonstration. In Birmingham, Ala., school children steadfastly marched against the violent spray of fire hoses and were jailed as a result. The triumphant 1963 march on Washington, D.C. captured worldwide attention and garnered broad national support, helping to shift federal policy."
