Jim Hightower

Jim Hightower was FFRF’s 2022 Clarence Darrow Awardee. The award is an all-purpose award to recognize civil libertarians, those who promote science and evolution, and/or freethought, as Darrow advocated.

The two-time Texas Agriculture Commissioner is a national radio commentator heard on more than 150 commercial and public stations. He writes a rousing newsletter, “The Hightower Lowdown” and has been dubbed a “populist road warrior.” A New York Times bestselling author, he’s written seven books, most recently, “Swim Against the Current: Even a Dead Fish Can Go with the Flow.” He embodies the old Yugosloavian proverb, “You can fight the gods and still have fun.”
