Mountain Talk: Appalachia 2050

Mountain Talk: Appalachia 2050

Fifty years after the inception of the “War on Poverty,” much has been accomplished in Appalachia.  But more remains to be done.  Ralph B. Davis, a journalist and filmmaker from Floyd County, Ky., recently visited WMMT’s Mountain Talk to discuss and share clips from his documentary, Appalachia 2050.  In the film, residents of the region talk about what they think needs to happen to finish the job that the War on Poverty began.  In addition to Ralph’s commentary, we hear from Don Fields, Mike Vance, Jonathan Gay, John and Jean Rosenberg, John Trusty, and Lee Mueller.   The full film is available on YouTube.
