Welcome to the Urban Appalachian Community Coalition Story Gathering Project Interview Archive. Our purpose is to engage members of our community in informally gathering and recording interviews with people of Appalachian descent in the greater Cincinnati area, and to collect and share these stories.
The interviews you will see and hear on this page were conducted between friends, colleagues, and family members, and recorded using smartphones and Zoom. Over time we will select short sections of multiple interviews and “stitch” them into Video Quilts. The first such Quilt is below.
You, too, can help us gather and record interviews with people of Appalachian descent in the greater Cincinnati area. More information can be found here and/or email us at [email protected].
