Bettmann/Corbis

Eyes on the Prize is the definitive story of the civil rights era from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life and embodied a struggle whose reverberations continue to be felt today

In tonight’s segment, Ain’t Gonna Shuffle No More, A call to pride and a renewed push for unity galvanize black America. World heavyweight champion Cassius Clay (above) challenges America to accept him as Muhammad Ali, a minister of Islam who refuses to fight in Vietnam. Students at Howard University in Washington, DC, fight to bring the growing black consciousness movement and their African heritage inside the walls of this prominent black institution. Black elected officials and community activists organize the National Black Political Convention in Gary, Indiana, in an attempt to create a unified black response to growing repression against the movement.

Watch it tonight at 8pm on WGBH World. More airings
