I thought some of you might find this video to be interesting. Finding quality material about Appalachian History on the internet can often be like stumbling around in the dark. Sometimes, you find a little light. I think this video is wonderfully done. It helps to capture aspects of poverty in Appalachia during the “Age of Affluence.” At the same time it provides incredible commentary on how the government and/or political candidates used that poverty, and by connection the Appalachian people, for their benefit. In this video the stereotyped backward and barbaric images of Appalachia are exposed paving the way for critical and accurate commentary.
