ANNOTATION

This article by a long time Highlander Center staff member explores the relationships between popular education and organizing. The essay opens with a specifc discussion of this relationship quoting both Myles Horton and Paulo Freire's concerns with the issues in the relationship. The context for the discussion was the struggle of the Bell County Kentucky citizens over the pollution of Yellow Creek by the Middlesboro Tanning Company of Delaware, Inc. The essay explores the ways in which education developed in the context of the struggle to organize.
