Bringing An Appalachian Sense Of Community To Urban Places On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, throughout the 20th century, people left Appalachia in search of jobs and opportunities. Some Appalachians came to a part of Atlanta, Georgia for work, bringing with them their mountain culture. Jess Maydor has this story about Cabbagetown.

Also, in this show, the Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, shares its latest story on the conflicts between wind energy farms and rural communities.
