This week, State of the Re:Union travels through Appalachia. We’ll learn about mountain-top-removal mining through the miners and communities of West Virginia. In Kentucky, we hear a local radio DJ who’s gone from bluegrass and blues to Blackalicious, with an unexpected key audience.
The famous banjo picker and
singer-songwriter Pete Seeger wrote or popularized such songs as "Turn, turn Turn," and "We
shall overcome," which became the anthem of the civil rights movement. He played the concerts to raise money for micro loans for New England farmers.
