Glen's Highlander: No Ordinary School, 1932-1962 first appeared in 1988, it was hailed as a full and authoritative study of one of the South's most extraordinary and controversial institutions. Now, in this second edition, Glen updates Highlander's story through the 1990s. He incorporates newly available materials and the latest scholarship to detail the school's recent work in Appalachia, its efforts to bring international grassroots groups together on common issues, and its support of emerging economic and environmental justice campaigns." "First named the Highlander Folk School and established in 1932 by Myles Horton and Don West near Monteagle, Tennessee, this adult education center has been both a vital resource for southern and Appalachian activists and a catalyst for several major movements for social change. During its first thirty years, Highlander served as a community folk school, as a training center for southern labor and Farmer's Union members, and as a meeting place for black and white civil rights workers. Its advocacy of racial equality ultimately prompted the state of Tennessee to revoke the charter of the original institution in 1962. Undaunted, the school's officers reorganized the institution as the Highlander Research and Education Center in Knoxville, where it gave ongoing support to the civil rights movement and promoted a multiracial poor people's coalition. Today, operating in New Market, Tennessee, it continues to devise new strategies of progressive change from the experiences of ordinary people." "This comprehensive history offers a unique perspective on the movements, institutions, organizations, and individuals that permanently reshaped our understanding of the South and Appalachia in the twentieth century. It also suggests the range of problems and possibilities of using education to achieve economic, political, and racial justice."--Jacket1264ocn757736520visu20070.23You got to move stories of change in the southHistoryA documentary about the struggles of "ordinary plain folks" against injustice, told in their own words, with historical photos and films.

Founded in 1932 by educator Myles Horton, the Highlander Folk School sought to address the economic and political problems facing communities in Appalachian Tennessee and other southern states. To this end Horton and the school's staff involved themselves in the labor and civil rights disputes that emerged across the south over the next three decades. Drawing on the Highlander archives housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society, the Avery Research Center in South Carolina, and the Highlander Research and Education Center in Tennessee, Stephen A. Schneider reconstructs the pedagogical theories and rhetorical practices developed and employed at Highlander. He shows how the school focused on developing forms of collective rhetorical action, helped students frame social problems as spurs to direct action, and situated education as an agency for organizing and mobilizing communities. Schneider studies how Highlander's educational programs contributed to this broader goal of encouraging social action. Specifically he focuses on four of the school's more established programs: labor drama, labor journalism, citizenship education, and music. These programs not only taught social movement participants how to create plays, newspapers, citizenship schools, and songs, they also helped the participants frame the problems they faced as having solutions based in collective democratic action. Highlander's programs thereby functioned rhetorically, insofar as they provided students with the means to define and transform oppressive social and economic conditions. By providing students with the means to comprehend social problems and with the cultural agencies (theater, journalism, literacy, and music) to address these problems directly, Highlander provided an important model for understanding the relationships connecting education, rhetoric, and social change."--724ocn026525209book19360.92United StatesFBI file--Highlander Folk SchoolHistoryArchivesSources654ocn015618671visu19810.70The adventures of a radical hillbillyHistoryBiographyInterviews"Bill Moyers interviews Myles Horton about his life, Highlander, and his philosophy of education."402ocn002561199book19640.70Tennessee State Library and ArchivesHighlander Folk School audio collectionCatalogs192ocn173189548file20060.85Clark, Septima PoinsetteOral history interview with Septima Poinsette Clark, July 30, 1976 interview G-0017, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007)InterviewsSeptima Clark was hired by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to continue the voter registration and community education classes she had taught through the Highlander Folk School. She recalls some of the successes of her work with the S.C.L.C., especially the passing of the Voting Rights Act. The challenges of the work included prejudice against the female leaders in the organization, violent reactions by local police and Ku Klux Klan, and occasional class prejudice amongst SCLC leaders. Clark notes how several leaders needed to learn techniques for serving poor rural people, and she often corrected their misunderstandings. She compares the leadership strategies of Andrew Young, Wyatt T. Walker, and Ralph Abernathy and explains why the organization flourished under the influence of certain civil rights workers like Young and Jesse Jackson171ocn036495669book19950.96NAACP administration, 1956-65ArchivesCorrespondence, memoranda, telegrams, press releases, clippings, reports, and articles concerning: Presbyterian Summer Leadership Training School at Maryville College; Memphis school desegregation case; opposition to federal aid for segregated school systems; teaching guidelines regarding Negro role in American history161ocn023825342book19900.95Guide to the microfilm edition of the FBI file on the Highlander Folk SchoolHistorySources141ocn055069045book20030.97Freire, PauloO caminho se faz caminhando : conversas sobre educação e mudança social132ocn015812542mix19850.82Glen, John MOn the cutting edge : a history of the Highlander Folk School, 1932-1962+-+9141201995Fri Feb 13 10:53:38 EST 2015batch29282
