Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1985, a
prize-winning PBS "American Experience" documentary series, uses
contemporary interviews and historical footage to cover all of the major
events of the civil rights movement from 1954-1985. Dr. Greenwood has
used the series extensively in her teaching, and she will share some
strategies for using particular portions of the program in your
classrooms. This seminar will provide content that can be used to cover
USII.25 and USII.26 from the USII Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
