Description: 

Highlander Folk School, founded in 1932, began as an educational resource for adults fighting unemployment and anti-union movements, and quickly became committed to ending segregation. Through a number of rich anecdotes, Myles Horton, one of the founders of the Highlander Folk School, indicates the basic role the school plays in the civil rights movement in the South. Horton mentions Highlander's involvement with SNCC and CORE and their struggles with the John Birch Society and the Ku Klux Klan in Tennessee. Abbot Kaplan speaks briefly after Horton's talk. Recorded at the home of Dr. And Mrs. Paul Sheats in Beverly Hills by Rome Ronconi.
