Beginning of the Year Update

Members of Fire in the Mountains recently returned from a two day oral history training, focusing on story collecting.  It was graciously led and hosted by Carrie & Michael Kline of Folk Talk – Talking Across the Lines.

We are feeling invigorated and excited about beginning the necessary work of listening to, collecting and spreading citizens’ stories regarding the Battle of Blair Mountain, and hearing opinions about the strip mine that is planned upon this historic site.

Thanks for your support.  We look forward to conducting and uploading some interviews in the near future!
