Blair Mountain March Commences

Appalachian Voices’ team will be here with updates all week from the historic march on Blair Mountain. We’ll have a longer piece on the background of the march up this afternoon, as well as a report from the first day.

This video by the phenomenal Jordan Freeman includes some great footage and provides a wonderful historical primer for this week.
