Interview with Herbert Brownell conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion begins with the lack of federal intervention in the Emmett Till case and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Discussion continues with President Eisenhower's views on civil rights issues, the Brown v. Board of Education decision, and intervention in the integration of Little Rock Central High School.
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.
