If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of Highlander and civil rights history, now is your chance.  As part of Highlander’s 80th Anniversary, we are auctioning a poster containing the original signatures of both Septima Clark and Rosa Parks. Septima Clark first came to Highlander as a workshop participant and soon after became the Director of Integration Workshops. Clark later became the director of the Citizenship School program and helped organize and spread citizenship schools across the South.

Rosa Parks, known as the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement,” attended a workshop at Highlander in the summer of 1955 before refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus in December 1955.
