Good, but some of the material was covered a bit better by another PBS series.
13 May 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Eyes on the Prize" is an exceptional series--mostly because instead of the typical hour or half hour documentary, it's VERY thorough and very detailed---covering not just an event but the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1965--and a LOT happened during that time. This isn't surprising, as PBS has made tons of interesting and well-crafted documentaries over the years.

This particular episode of the mini-series has to do with the sit-ins as well as the freedom riders of the early 1960s. I'd seen an episode of "The American Experience" ("Freedom Riders (#23.12)"--also from PBS) about the freedom riders and I thought it much more detailed and compelling. However, it's still important and enlightening--and well worth your time.
