Michael Hill (born 1951) is an American-born political activist from Alabama. He is a co-founder and the president of the "Southern secession" movement the League of the South, an organization whose stated goal is to create an independent country made up of the former slave states of the American South. A Neo-Confederate, Hill is known for his white supremacist and pro-slavery views.
Hill was born in 1951 in Killen, Alabama. He studied history at the University of Alabama.
Hill taught British history at Stillman College, a historically black college in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for eighteen years until 1998. Building on the views of his mentors at the University of Alabama, he published two books on the Celts., romanticizing the Celtic soldier.
In 1994, Hill co-founded the League of the South, a pro-Southern secession organization, with Reverend J. Steven Wilkins of Auburn Avenue Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Louisiana and thirty-nine other Neo-Confederates. A year later, in 1995, he established a chapter of the League of the South on the campus of his alma mater, the University of Alabama. With Thomas Fleming, Hill co-authored an article entitled "New Dixie Manifesto" in The Washington Post in June 1995.
Hill tried to revive the Southern Party in 2003. A decade later, in 2013, Hill promoted "opposition to immigration and same-sex marriage." In June 2015, he spoke out in defense of slavery and white supremacy, stating that his views were backed up by science.
