Title: IN THIS AFFLUENT SOCIETY
Movie ID: VT4326.1
Movie Number: 4326
Description: 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.
