WORLD Channel: Eyes on the Prize - Back to the Movement

Preview | 30s

Power and powerlessness. Pummeled by urban renewal, a lack of jobs, and police harassment, Miami's black community explodes in rioting. But in Chicago, a grassroots movement triumphs; frustrated by decades of unfulfilled promises made by the Democratic political machine, reformers install Harold Washington as Chicago's first black mayor. From the award-winning doc series "Eyes on the Prize."
