Fifty years after the War on Poverty began much has been accomplished in Appalachia, but more remains to be done. Floyd Co journalist, and now filmmaker, Ralph B. Davis visited WMMT’s Mountain Talk to discus and share clips from his documentary Appalachia 2050, in which residents of the region talk about what is needed to finish the job. In addition to Ralph’s commentary, we hear from Don Fields, Mike Vance, Jonathan Gay, John and Jean Rosenberg, John Trusty and Lee Mueller. The full film is available on YouTube.
