Moving Mountains with Music

by
Jeff Biggers

An extraordinary new album, “Still Moving
Mountains: The Journey Home
,” just released with one of the finest showcases of
musical talents from the Appalachian coalfields, has gone one step further:
Accompanied by a multimedia website—www.JourneyUpCoalRiver.org—the album
includes a map and search engine that allows listeners to see the setting of a
song or mining and environmental issue, scroll through photographs, videos, and
interviews, and learn ways to become involved in local coalfield citizens
groups.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
