Myles Horton, cofounder of the Highlander Folk School, was in it for the long haul. He knew social change was a project he couldn't finish in his lifetime, and that was okay with him. He understood anger as a flame that can, if banked and used wisely, be a powerful fuel for social change. In this book Mr. Horton tells the story of how he cofounded Highlander and of the people who helped shape the school: Martin Luther King, Jr., Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Saul Alinsky, and Ralph Abernathy, to name a few. These people helped change our world for the better; Highlander still exists and continues to work for "justice, equality and sustainability."
