If you haven’t heard about the new documentary Blood on the Mountain—you should.
No other film has taken such a broad view of the political corruption and exploitative nature that is the Appalachian coal industry.
For decades the industry has re-written our history and turned us against ourselves for their benefit, reducing labor costs and avoiding laws meant to protect coal miners and their families. Today, we know the truth.
This film should be standard viewing for all citizens of the mountains—especially our children.
Our past is worth knowing so we can understand the present.
