Appalachia has an often hidden history of diverse populations from the late 19th century and beyond. The region has vibrant minority communities who enrich our culture and are imagining new and attainable futures for themselves and for Appalachia. This part of the exhibit showcases only four of many such groups: Indigenous Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans and LGBTQ+ Appalachians.
