Sonny Skyhawk

Sonny Skyhawk, Founder and Chairman of American Indians in Film and Television, discusses the civil rights movement’s significant impact on Native Americans, who shared many of the same struggles as the African-American community. He said, “We watched constantly, what was going on […] My parents and grandparents said, ‘Geez, you know, were not in this by ourselves. It’s happening to other people besides us.'”
