You could always ask your local library to order the DVD. Looks to be about $50. For some reason it isn't available to buy directly. 

From the American Masters page on the episode:

A DVD of “Ralph Ellison: An American Journey”, containing an additional hour of video commentary and analysis can be purchased from California Newsreel.

I couldn't get it to come up on the AM page on Pbs.org but a Google search brought it up.
