Mtn. Talk: Dollars & Cents

Dollars & Cents: Race and Class in the West Virginia Coalfields is the second installment in the Hope audio series: an interracial documentary project conducted over the past 18 months in Mount Hope, WV. Michael and Carrie Kline, and O.H. Jackson Napier, collected more than 40 life story interviews from children of coal miners. The stories focus on the fabric of what life and work in this small, diverse town was like a half-century ago.
