|Title:||Students at Highlander Folk School, circa 1958, Monteagle, Tennessee|
Photograph of students who attended Highlander Folk School in the late 1950s. The Highlander Folk School was founded in 1932 in the belief that education is a tool for social change. The school's founders maintained that poor people themselves knew best what they needed to learn, and that the policies of a truly just and democratic society must be shaped by all of the people in that society. Over the years, the school has played an important role in many political movements, including the Southern labor movements of the 1930s and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1940s-60s.
The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
