WORLD Channel: Eyes on the Prize - The Time Has Come

Preview | 30s

After a decade-long cry for justice, a new sound is heard in the Civil Rights Movement: the call for power. Malcolm X takes nationalism to urban streets as a younger generation of black leaders listens. In the South, Stokely Carmichael and the SNCC move from "Freedom Now!" to "Black Power!" as the fabric of the traditional movement changes. From the award-winning doc series "Eyes on the Prize."
