"How Myles Horton and the Highlander Folk School catalyzed social justice and democratic education. For too long, the story of life-changing teacher and activist Myles Horton has escaped the public spotlight. An inspiring and humble leader whose work influenced the Civil Rights Movement, Horton helped thousands of marginalized people gain greater control over their lives. Born and raised in early twentieth-century Tennessee, Horton was appalled by the disrespect and discrimination that was heaped on poor people-both black and white-throughout Appalachia. He resolved to create a place, available to all, where regular people could talk to each other, learn from one another, and get to the heart of issues of class and race and right and wrong. And so in 1932, Horton cofounded the Highlander Folk School, smack in the middle of Tennessee. Education in Black and White is the first biography of Myles Horton in 25 years and focuses, in particular, on the educational theories and strategies he first developed at Highlander to serve the interests of the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed. His personal vision became an essential influence on everyone from Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr., to Eleanor Roosevelt and Congressman John Lewis. Stephen Preskill chronicles how Myles Horton gained influence as an advocate for organized labor, an activist for civil rights, a supporter of Appalachian self-empowerment, an architect of an international popular education network, and a champion for direct democracy, showing how the example he set remains education's last best hope today"--

This book explores collective learning in the Gandhian repertoire's transnational diffusion from the Indian independence movement to the American civil rights movement. Instead of focusing primarily on interpersonal linkages or causal mechanisms, it highlights how decades of translation and experimentation by various actors enabled full implementation. It also shows that transnational diffusion was not a linear and predictable process, but underwent numerous twists and turns. It is relevant for contemporary scholars as well as activists.

Access to fair and free public education is one of the cornerstones of American democracy. Yet, in many parts of the country, this ideal has only been realized in the twentieth century. As Thomas O'Brien argues, access to education in the state of Georgia has historically been restricted along the lines of race, class, and region. Black, poor, and rural students fared extremely poorly in the Jim Crow-era Georgia public school system as politically powerful groups fought to maintain a two-tier educational structure that favored their own children over those from the disadvantaged, voiceless majority. O'Brien shows that even after 1961, when opponents of segregation managed to open the doors of Atlanta's top public schools to minority students, the vast majority of Georgia's public schoolchildren continued to receive barely adequate or substandard education at the hands of local and state authorities. This is an important and timely contribution to an ongoing debate about the shamefully uneven quality of public education in this country, the historic roots of the problem and the difficulties standing in the way of reform.

This first comprehensive history of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference demonstrates the fallacy of closing the record on the nonviolent movement with the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. After exploring the campaigns, educational programs, experiments in nonviolent social relations, and impact of SCLC in the King years, this study continues the coverage through the 1970s into the middle 1980s. Basing his account on both the King records and, for the first time, the extensive recent materials of SCLC, the author examines the continuity of the organization and its dream in the contemporary world. The result is a spirited account valuable to both the general reader and the student of black Americans and nonviolence. Both the faith and the strategy of the nonviolent dream are shown as vital elements of SCLC in its three decades of activism.
