Eyes on the Prize- PBS Documentary
"Spending summers with my grandparents in the south was always a great experience.  I learned so much about my parents and the family I didn't see very often. All of my grandmother's children were born during Jim Crow." 
Eyes on the Prize was released in the late 80s when I was in elementary school. The stories of my family were the same as many other families. This is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of information on black history and the black experience. Every minute is still significant 35 years later.
