In partnership with Dub Cornett’s Oso Studios and executive producer Common, Highlander is set in the most iconic and influential school of the civil rights movement. The Highlander Folk School was the training ground in nonviolence for such legends as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, John Lewis, Pete Seeger, John King, and Woody Guthrie. By illuminating the historic importance of this relatively unknown institution, HIghlander will bridge the gap from both sides of the aisle to work toward solutions on the hot-button issues impacting our country.
