        Al Sharpton: The Road to Racial Justice

        Al Sharpton expresses his thoughts on racial equality in America and describes the challenge today’s activists face in order to organize for—and sustain—real change, in this video from Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now. Sharpton recognizes the frustration and anger that many black Americans share because their access to voting rights, criminal justice, and economic opportunity has been restricted. He also acknowledges that some progress has been made, comparing today’s world with that experienced by earlier civil rights organizers. While Sharpton commends the excitement exhibited by today’s young activists, he highlights the need to create a sustainable long-term movement. This resource is part of the Civil Rights: Then and Now collection.
