Buried History

Host Jeff Young talks with historian Chuck Keeney about his new book, "The Road to Blair Mountain," which tells the story of the effort to save the site of a bloody fight in the region's mine wars a century ago. Not only was this chapter in labor history deliberately suppressed, the mountain itself was nearly destroyed by coal mining. And we hear from a retired coal miner who now volunteers his time at a museum dedicated to reviving Appalachia's labor history.
