THE BLACK APPALACHIAN
HOW A MINORITY SHAPED APPALACHIA
This film brings to life the experiences, and celebrates the contributions of African-Americans to Appalachian culture. Unknown to many, the contributions are enormous. From pre-Civil War to modern day, there are few stories more remarkable than that of the black Appalachian. This film is currently in development and pre-production, and will feature stories of those who have shaped and are shaping the culture of Appalachia.
"Black people in Appalachia are a neglected minority within a neglected minority."
Dr. William Turner
