ARC 121

Honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday any day from Mon., Jan. 20-Fri, Jan. 24, at noon in the Academic & Research Center 112 to watch Eyes on the Prize, an award-winning documentary covering the major events of the civil rights movement from 1954 to 1985.

Featuring events from the Montgomery bus boycott in 1954 to the Voting Rights Act in 1965, from community power in schools to "Black Power" in the streets, and from early acts of individual courage through to the flowering of a mass movement and its eventual split into factions, the film has won six Emmys and several other prestigious honors.

A light lunch will be provided.
