Registration is now open for Highlander’s 87th annual Homecoming celebration Sept. 20-22, 2019, in New Market, TN. The three-day weekend is an opportunity to join hundreds of comrades from across the region and globe as we come together to share and learn from each other’s work, build and renew relationships, and celebrate the wins and strides of the Southern freedom fight this year.
