(2 videos, swipe left) Happy Birthday to the late James Still (1906-2001.) A resident of Knott county, KY, Still was poet, novelist, folklorist, and a friend to many here at Appalshop that still inspires us today through his writings. In this clip from the 1978 Appalshop Documentary "Ourselves and That Promise," we hear him reading his poem "White Highways." Visit the Appalshop store for this documentary or pick up a CD or digital download of "Heritage" which contains James Still reading his poetry, featuring music by Randy Wilson. #appalachia #poetry #jamesstill #documentary

#Repost @allaccesseky The All Access EKY 2018 Summer Documentary Fellows traveled to east Tennessee yesterday to share some of their media with the @stayproject at the @highlandercenter! They’re working hard creating media that shares the stories of what it means to be young and needing access to good reproductive health care and birth control in east Kentucky.

Two days after what would have been her birthday, (July 7) we celebrate one of Kentucky's prized authors with the Appalshop film, "Harriette Simpson Arnow: 1908-1986." Streaming free on appalshop.org The 1986 documentary by Appalshop filmmaker, Herb E. Smith, introduces readers of The Dollmaker to its author – a feisty, funny, out-spoken, talented and hardworking woman. In interviews filmed not long before her death, Mrs. Arnow provides the basic biographical details of her life and reveals the difficulties of being a writer, a wife and a mother — roles that she balanced for much of her career. We learn of her experience teaching in a one-room schoolhouse in her native Pulaski County, Kentucky; how she left the mountains looking for work and an opportunity to write; and of the difficulties finding the time and energy to write while raising a family, first on a Appalachian farm, then in wartime Detroit. Arnow was also an alumnus of @bereacollege #bereacollege

Look who was featured in @yesmagazine_!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This year, @allaccesseky joined with Appalshop's youth media training program, Appalachian Media Institute, and will produce three documentary films that will debut on July 28th. "All Access began in 2016 as a collaboration between the Kentucky Health Justice Network, the national nonprofit Power To Decide, and Appalshop, the local media and arts organization in Whitesburg where the project is housed. It started as a reimagining of a previous Appalshop program, the East Kentucky Reproductive Health Project, but is specifically focused on increasing access to full-spectrum birth control in the region. All Access hires young women ages 17 to 22 from Appalachian counties to create media campaigns around reproductive health. Over the course of an eight-week paid fellowship, young women interview other women about their reproductive health experiences, specifically focusing on birth control, and create short educational films. They have also produced social media campaigns, set up tables at local festivals, and distributed printed materials through clinics and local businesses."

Today Appalshop was in attendance for the @cedikentucky CEDIK - Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky Promise Zone Downtown Revitalization Spring Convening at Bell Theater in Pineville, Kentucky. Everyone has consistently inspired and invigorated us to reach the goals we have set with the partners in our coalition and the larger network. We just wanted to express our excitement and gratitude to CEDIK, and all the communities and their leaders who came out to hear each other and get the ball rolling on the many community development initiatives that we will see happening soon in our Kentucky towns.
