From the Publisher

With magnificent prose Gone Home is a powerful sociological and racial analysis of the lives and experiences of black people in and across Kentucky and Appalachia. Karida Brown has gifted us with a book that is a must read within and beyond the academy."—Marcus Anthony Hunter, author of Black Citymakers: How the Philadelphia Negro Changed Urban America

Breathtaking in its scope, substance, and style, Gone Home breaks important new ground. Karida Brown's distinctive and compelling voice will deeply impact both scholarly and public audiences. This book is poised to become a classic." —David Cunningham, Washington University in St. Louis

With rich and accessible prose, Karida Brown's Gone Home stands as an authoritative study of black life in Harlan County. It captures the resilience and cultural dynamism of a people often rendered invisible in coal country."—Frank X. Walker, University of Kentucky

Karida Brown has given readers an insightful, innovative, and much needed reminder that, yes, there are African Americans in Appalachia, and theirs is a fascinating and important story." —Stewart Tolnay, co-author of Lynched: The Victims of Southern Mob Violence
