Communist Highlander Folk School, Monteagle, TN & Charleston, SC: Extensive Historical Photo Collage, Eleanor Roosevelt

This is truly a remarkable historical collection of this communist-indoctrination training for labor and racist radicals. Notably, below are the auto workers from the CIO labor union.

Also, evidently there were "extension schools", one being in Charleston, SC.

We'd thought the Highlander had been shut down by the state, but apparently its records go to 2005! Mrs. Roosevelt had made at least one visit as late as 1957 (same year as MLK's 1st visit)!

Well, we did some more poking around and discovered it was shut down by the state in 1961. But in intrinsic subversive character Horton moved the Highlander from Monteagle to Knoxville where it flourishes today as the Highlander Research and Education Center.

We don't think it would be out of order to regard the SPLC as today's graduate school of Communist agitation!

See the Highlander story as told by the boxed media at Wikipedia.
