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.
