In the early 1960's, hundreds of Kentucky coal miners displaced by
automation strike out at their former employers, bombing mines to shut down
production. Millions of other displaced by machines across Appalachia and
the rural South head north to begin a new life in Chicago. This program
recounts these stories of desperation and hope and also explores the origin
of America's war on poverty and how attitudes toward race and faith in the
accessibility of the American dream, shape the battle plan.
