Interview with Senator Ralph W. Yarborough conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion centers on his days in Congress and his views regarding civil rights and the Johnson administration. He also discusses his reaction to Bloody Sunday in Selma and his speech against Alabama Governor George Wallace afterward.
The original interview elements, 16mm negative and 1/4" audio reel to reel, were preserved during 2010-2016 due to the generosity of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Thanks to a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the preserved films were digitized to create 10-bit uncompressed HD files and the original 1/4" elements were digitized to create 24-bit 96kHz .wav files. The picture and audio were then reassembled at the Film & Media Archive.
