"Were I to choose America's most influential and inspiring educator, it would be Myles Horton of Highlander." - Studs Terkel. Myles Horton (1905-1990) was the co-founder and long-time leader of the Highlander Center a retreat center that, starting in 1932 and still going strong, serves Southern activists. It is difficult to over-state its impact on CIO organizing in the 1930s, the Civil Rights Movement (Rosa Parks had just returned from Highlander when she refused to give up her seat on that Montgomery, Alabama, bus, and "We Shall Overcome" was popularized at Highlander), and gay rights, and environmental struggles and Black Lives Matter, and all kind of progressive activism. The Kohl's are well-know and well-published educators from the North.
