WORLD Channel: Eyes on the Prize - Bridge to Freedom

Preview | 30s

A decade of lessons is applied in the peaceful-turned-climactic and bloody march in Alabama from Selma to Montgomery. "Blood Sunday" leads to two additional marches, one symbolic and one full-scale, and a major victory: the Voting Rights Act is passed in 1965. But civil rights leaders know they have new challenges ahead. From the award-winning documentary series "Eyes on the Prize."
