In this segment from the 1987 PBS documentary, Eyes on the Prize, the civil rights movement discovers the power of mass demonstrations as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. emerges as its most visible leader. Some demonstrations succeed; others fail. But the triumphant March on Washington, D.C., under King's leadership, shows a mounting national support for civil rights. President John F. Kennedy proposes the Civil Rights Act. (NR - 60 minutes)
