Black in Appalachia

Black in Appalachia's work takes many forms, including digital archives, documentaries, oral histories, and the Black in Appalachia podcast. These different mediums all advance the same mission: "to raise the visibility and contributions of the Black communities of the Mountain South." The Podcast, which has its own page on the site, is co-hosted by Dr. Enkeshi El-Amin (a researcher and lecturer) and Angela Dennis (a journalist and activist). The show shares "historical and contemporary stories of people, places and experiences," from the region. Though only a few episodes have been released as of this write-up, readers should check back periodically for new content. In the meantime, enjoy the other resources found on the Projects page. For example, the Community History Digital Archive highlights historical documents and images from East Tennessee, and the 8th of August: Tennessee's Celebration of Emancipation video (produced by PBS) details an often unknown history of the Emancipation Proclamation. To learn more about Black in Appalachia's work, check out the Outreach and Engagement and About Us sections of the More page, or follow their various social media channels linked on the site.
