Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his own direct, modest, plain-spoken style, Myles Horton tells the story of the Highlander Folk School. A major catalyst for social change in the United States for more than sixty years, this school has touched the lives of so many people, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Pete Seeger. Filled with disarmingly honest insight and gentle humor, this is an inspiring hymn to the possibility of social change.

Synopsis:

Studs Terkel, Bill Moyer, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King, Jr. are among the many who have recognized the unique influence Myles Horton has had on American social and educational history. Horton tells in his own simple, moving language how his vision was realized in the creation of the Highlander Folk School for adults in Tennessee. 35 photographs.
