Screening of Movie on Myles Horton and Highlander Folkschool

Myles Horton and his Highlander Folk School were key elements in organizing for Civil Rights in the South for several decades starting in the early 1930s. Rosa Parks spent a week there in the months before she helped set off the Montgomery Bus Boycott with her refusal to yield her seat to a white man. Dr. King went there a number of times to work with other leaders of the movement. And others met there for planning, organizing, and to seek safe haven.
