Here in East Tennessee, there is a podcast that looks at the Black experience in Appalachia. 

The “Black in Appalachia” podcast is a product of a partnership with East Tennessee PBS.

A few weeks ago, I spoke with the co-hosts - Dr. Enkeshi El-Amin, a lecturer at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville; and Angela Dennis, a journalist and literary activist - along with William Isom, director of “Black in Appalachia.”

Catch all the episodes of the “Black in Appalachia” podcast at blackinappalachia.org and wherever you get your podcasts.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
