A documentary about the struggles of ordinary plain folks against injustice, told in their own words, with historical photos and films. The film covers community actions against strip mining in Kentucky, toxic waste dumping in Tennessee, and illiteracy and discrimination in South Carolina. These grassroots movements all gained impetus from the legendary Highlander Folk School in Tennessee, which for over 50 years under the leadership of Myles Horton, has catalyzed communication and social change.
