'True South' is a fresh look at 'Eyes on the Prize' � and a reminder of the ongoing civil rights struggle

I first encountered "Eyes on the Prize" in high school, as many children of the '80s did. The stories and images of the civil rights movement made their mark on me: The savage murder of Emmett Till, the courage of marchers who faced down beatings and police dogs, and the dogged persistence (and occasional failing) of Martin Luther King Jr. came to vivid life before my eyes. At the time I assumed this six-hour documentary series was merely the latest look at this recent history. I had no conception of the mountains that were moved to bring all of it to the screen.
