Summary, etc.:
"A much-needed corrective to the current white-washing of Appalachia. In telling the stories of Appalachian African Americans living and working in steel and coal towns, Brown offers a deep and sweeping look at race, the formation of identity, changes in politics and policy, and black migration in the region and beyond"-- Provided by publisher.
