On February 22-24, Highlander hosted a weekend retreat by a group of about 30 undergraduate and graduate students from Nashville area colleges: American Baptist College, Fisk University, Tennessee State University and Vanderbilt.

The group was led by Rev. James Lawson, Distinguished University Professor at Vanderbilt who taught non-violence to the members of the Nashville sit-in movement in the early 1960s, and John Egerton, a leading journalist of the South and the civil rights movement.
