The description at YouTube from BBCMotionGalleryNYLA: The footage you are about to see is unforgettable, even unimaginable.

Rare footage includes Freedom Summer, Malcolm X and Black Power, and the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.

With a far-ranging selection of powerful, often wrenching images, our footage captures the danger, drama, and bravery of the civil rights movement. Visit the BBC Motion Gallery for more of this dramatic footage.
