Eyes on the Prize

The Keys to the Kingdom (1974-1980)

Season 02  Episode 7

In the 1970s, antidiscrimination legal rights gained in past decades by the Civil Rights Movement are put to the test. In Boston, some whites violently resist a federal court school desegregation order. Atlanta's first Black mayor, Maynard Jackson, proves that affirmative action can work, but the Bakke Supreme Court case challenges that policy.
