OK here goes:

Eyes on the Prize II: America at the Racial Crossroads.
Part 1, The Time Has Come, 1964-1966. During the decade of civil rights
protest in the South, a sense of urgency and anger
emerged from the black
communities in the North. This urgency was best
articulated by Malcolm X,
then National Minister of the Nation of Islam. Viewers
follow the trajectory
of Malcolm X's influence, both within the movement and
outside. The
program shows the influence of his philosophy on the
staff of the Student
Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) as they
organized the
Lowndes County Freedom Organization in Alabama and as
they issued the
call for "Black power" during the 1966 Meredith March
Against Fear in
Mississippi. (available from PBS)
