The Fall 2007 issue of Race, Poverty, & the Environment, entitled “Educating for Equity,” contains several articles that will be interesting to friends of Highlander:
An interview with Mónica Hernández (coordinator of Highlander’s Pueblos de Latinoamérica Program) about popular education and Highlander’s support for immigrant organizing.
An interview with Pancho Arguelles (Colectivo Flatlander) about the importance of popular education in creating broad movements for social change. Pancho was one of the keynote speakers at Highlander’s 75th anniversary celebration over Labor Day weekend.
“Civil Rights Movement Origins at Highlander Educational Sessions” by John Hurst (a longtime supporter of Highlander) about Highlander’s role in the Civil Rights Movement.
“Educating and Organizing” by Mike Miller (director of the ORGANIZE Training Center) about what community organizers and popular educators can learn from each other, drawing in part on the work of Myles Horton.
All four articles are well worth reading. You can view the whole issue here.
