Appalachia: Listening with Our Hearts
This 2007 publication from the Poverty Initiative contains reflections on issues of poverty, gender and race in Appalachia and beyond. Traveling with the Poverty Initiative in West Virginia, Ohio, and Tennessee in January 2007, fifty participants meet with leaders of organizations of impoverished people working to overcome the economic injustice of our society—those engaged in “the plight and the fight.” This collection of fifty-five essays and over one hundred photographs responds to those experiences.
Immersion participants included:
- Union Theological Seminary students and faculty
- Columbia University School of Social Work students
- Members of the Poverty Initiative’s Poverty Scholars Program
- Members of the Media Mobilizing Project
Copies are available for a $20 donation to the Poverty Initiative. Order form (pdf). For bulk rates (orders of ten or more) please call 212-280-1439.
