About this product
- DescriptionThe Appalachian Volunteers formed in the early 1960s, determined to eliminate poverty through education and vocational training and to improve schools and homes in the mountaius regions of the south-eastern United States. In Reformers to Radicals , Thomas Kiffmeyer illustrates how the activists ultimately failed, mainly because they were indecisive about the fundamental nature of their mission. The AVs, many of them college students, were also distracted by causes such as civil rights and opposition to the Vietnam War. Despite some progress, the organization finally lost the support of the national government and, more important, of many Appalachian people, setbacks from which it never recovered.
- Author BiographyThomas Kiffmeyer is associate professor of history at Morehead State University.
