Between 1985 and 1986, Jon Else spent every day alongside Henry Hampton helping to create the landmark television series, "Eyes on the Prize." He emerges today with a riveting account of just what went into the tumultuous 18-month production of the plainspoken history that reintroduced a generation to Emmet Till, the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and the long walk up the school steps in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Dr. Clayborne Carson, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Centennial Professor at Stanford University, joins Else for a conversation about the making of "Eyes on the Prize" and the legacy it left behind.
