Made as part of the epic, award-winning documentary series Eyes on the Prize—the definitive story of the civil rights era from the point of view of the people who lived it— “Bridge to Freedom” recounts the fateful march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in May 1965 led by Martin Luther King Jr. A major victory is won when the federal Voting Rights Bill passes, but civil rights leaders know they have new challenges ahead. Narrated by political leader and civil rights activist Julian Bond and nominated for an Academy Award for Documentary Feature, the sixth and final episode of the first season of Eyes on the Prize is rarely screened.
