WORLD Channel: Eyes on the Prize - Fighting Back

Preview | 30s

States' rights loyalists and federal authorities collide over integration and segregation; Arkansas' Central High School in 1957 (Little Rock Nine), and the University of Mississippi in 1962 (James Meredith). Both times, a Southern governor squares off with a U.S. president, violence erupts...and integration is carried out. From the award-winning documentary series "Eyes on the Prize."
