Diversity in Appalachia

October 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“Diversity in Appalachia” is a series of programs featuring scholars who look beyond the white, Anglo-Protestant, working-class culture to reveal the diversity that sometimes lies hidden in many communities.

As the fourth in the series, Dr. Connie Rice and Ilene Evans will talk about “The Great Migration” of African-Americans to the coal fields.

The series is in response to ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ by J.D. Vance and will explore who lives and works in Appalachia and how our heritage has an impact on who we are as a people.
