A Portrait-Story Project

“Voices for Appalachia – A Portrait-Story Project - Written and Narrated by Hundreds”

Each of the following stories is a unique perspective of everyday life in the mountains. They contemplate the relationship between land and the struggle for empowerment in a place where coal extraction has been essential for survival. Today, much of the region faces rural poverty, educational disadvantages, pollution, contaminated drinking water, and many other serious public health problems.
