The forthcoming issue of Appalachian Journal (34.3-4) focuses on Appalachian activism and honors Steve Fisher, a noted activist, author, and political science professor at Emory and Henry University, who is a longtime friend of Highlander and a member of the Highlander Board.

The issue features articles by a variety of activists and scholars, many of whom are also connected with Highlander, including Helen Lewis, Guy and Candie Carawan, Nina Gregg and Doug Gamble, Jeff Boyer, Fran Ansley, George Loveland, and Larry Osborne. Several of the articles discuss Highlander’s work in Appalachia.
