Synopsis

In 1932 the Highlander Folk School was founded in rural Tennessee to provide a focal point for the burgeoning Appalachian labor movement. Years later, in the 1950s, the center would play a pivotal role in the American Civil Rights Movement, training a number of famous and lesser-known advocates for social change. Using interviews and footage from the era, documentarians Lucy Massie Phenix and Veronica Selver chronicle the lives of people who have benefited as a result of efforts by the school.
