Abstract:

This program explores a century of conflict and tragedy in the Appalachians, beginning with the cultural oppression and forced exodus of the Cherokee. Documenting Appalachia's role in racial and ideological tensions leading up to the Civil War, the video examines the prevalence of slavery outside plantation culture and the unpredictable divisions among mountain communities that followed Secession. Discussions of race- and class-related strife-linked to the arrival of railroad, lumber, and mining interests in the region-culminates with the bloodshed of the Coal Wars, accompanied by authentic folk songs from the period.
