Not sure if you mean movies FROM the civil rights era, or movies about the
civil rights era, but if the latter, I think the Eyes on the Prize series (all
14 1-hour videos) is unsurpassedly excellent. And I think you may be able to
get them from Blockbuster or another big commercial video place (even in
Orange County!...?)
