Part of the documentary series Eyes on the Prize, which investigates the more recent journey of the civil rights movement and provides a follow-up to the acclaimed Eyes on the Prize series, Eyes on the Prize 2: Two Societies (1965-68) evaluates the climate of race relations in the North of the late '60s. Viewers witness a fiery race riot in Detroit, and Martin Luther King Jr.'s difficult crusade to desegregate Chicago housing. Commentary grounds these events in history and covers the civil rights timeline.
