Interview with Robert Moses conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion centers on the reasons he joined the civil rights movement, his work with SNCC in Mississippi, and his working relationships with other activists like Amzie Moore and Fannie Lou Hamer. Other topics include the Freedom Summer and the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Mickey Schwerner.
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.
