Diversity in Appalachia

September 13, 2018 @ 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.

First in the series is Joe Valencic from the Cleveland-style Polka Museum. He will talk about Slovenian migration to West Virginia and the polka music that group brought with them.

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.
