Ed Friend’s Highlander Folk School Films

The Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies and
the Digital Library of Georgia are pleased to announce that Ed Friend’s
historic Highlander film is now accessible online via the Digital
Library of Georgia. “Integrated in All Respects” consists of Ed
Friend’s film of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Highlander Folk
School in Monteagle, Tennessee during Labor Day weekend in 1957, and the
Georgia Commission on Education’s propaganda broadside that features
Friend’s photographs and stills from his film. Together the film and
broadside demonstrate how policymakers in the late 1950s perceived, and
attempted to cast, the civil rights movement.
