You see the same thing in rural Maine which is at the end of the Appalachian Trail.

I am fascinated with all aspects of American history, including the Melungeons, but the phrase
"...a timely parable of the nuanced history of race in America..."
Reeks of political correctness. Do not want.
It's as if all media people in America have it as their core mission to raise up those ignorant white people with their wise, sacred wordiness.

How interesting! I recently drove through that part of the country and was struck by how the Appalachains provided such formidable natural barriers to help maintain isolation. The USA is truly a land of a million stories.

Thanks for posting this. We have always been interested in Melungeons. My paternal grandfather was a strange looking man. Black hair, darkish skin and bright blue eyes, he was always very thin. He was born in Texas in 1879 but his family had come from the part of Tenn where they lived.
