Homecoming is our favorite weekend of the year at Highlander – every September we bring together hundreds of movement family from around the globe who join for fellowship, learning and strategizing, singing and dancing, and deepening relationships over a meal, a beautiful view of the mountains, or in the quiet moments the Hill provides.

We all leave Homecoming reenergized and recommitted to our work back home, knowing that we are in solidarity and community with a global network of freedom fighters working on the frontlines for transformative social change.

In 2020 and 2021, we hosted our annual Homecoming online to ensure the safety of our guests and staff during the pandemic. We are excited and hopeful that our 90th annual Homecoming in 2022 will allow us to come together again in person on Highlander’s hill to celebrate nine decades of building power and movement in the U.S. South. 

Until then, we hope you’ll enjoy revisiting these recordings from previous Homecoming gatherings. Stay tuned for details on Highlander’s 90th anniversary!
