Mtn. Talk Monday: Eastern Kentucky Response to Nazis

In February, it was made public that white nationalist groups were planning training and rally events in Pike County and Floyd County, Kentucky at the end of April. The response across eastern Kentucky has been largely that these groups are not welcome here. However, there are differences as to what folks believe the response should be. In this episode of Mountain Talk, host Elizabeth Sanders speaks with Ariana Velasquez of Pike County and Patrick Davis of Floyd County who are organizing community responses.
