Interview with Eliza and Harry Briggs, Sr. (Video)
Filmed interview with Eliza Briggs and Harry Briggs, Sr. conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion centers on the condition of segregated schools in South Carolina and their lawsuit against the state, which was combined with the Brown case in Kansas. Harry Briggs Sr. and Eliza Briggs were interviewed together.
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.
