Abstract

The Urban Appalachian Council (UAC) 1974-2014, was organized in Cincinnati, Ohio, to act as a regional resource and educational center for Appalachian affairs and to promote pride in cultural heritage among urban Appalachians.  Working with and for Appalachian migrants, the UAC was organized to function as both an advocate and a catalyst with a fundamental commitment to the concept of cultural pluralism.  Its commitment to cultural pluralism directed the UAC’s work in research, advocacy, community organization, cultural affirmation and program development.
