Update: We’re thrilled to announce that Bob Moses will join Highlander’s Homecoming this year as guest of honor! Mr. Moses initiated SNCC’s Mississippi Voter Registration Project and was appointed its director in 1962. He helped to lead the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) into the Mississippi Summer Project which became known as Freedom Summer. We are honored that he’ll be a part of Homecoming this year.
Plan to be on the Hill for Highlander’s annual gathering this September 19-21. The weekend will include reunions, group discussions, a Children’s Program, author-activist discussions, cultural performances, film, music, food, and, of course, reflections and a special party in honor of Helen Lewis. Homecoming will also be featuring Bob Moses, prominent figure in the Civil Rights Movement who helped lead the Council of Federated Organizations into the Mississippi Summer Project. The Community Sing will feature Bettie Mae Fikes of the SNCC (Student Non-violence Coordinating Committee) Freedom Singers. There’s a suggested donation of $20 for the Helen Lewis’ 90th Birthday Party. Saturday registration is $50 and $30 for Sunday. For both Saturday and Sunday, there’s a sliding scale of $82-$382. Camping is available at $15 per person at night. Saturday includes an opening plenary, methodology institutes, lunch, dinner and a dance.
