[ed:  thanks to Arthur for replying to Stephanie's query.]

From: Arthur Keene <keene at anthro.umass.edu>

Try  the video, The Rough Side of The Mountain which looks at the work 
of the Ivanhoe Civic League.  It;s a nice accompaniment to the book  It 
Comes From the People, (Hinsdale, Lewis and Waller) Temple U. Press.  
Describes the grassroots efforts of the ICL to organize and revitalize 
a deindustrialized community in Appalachia.

Video is by Appalshop.  (www.appalshop.org).

DO YOU HAVE INFO ON THE FITCHBERG VIDEO?

THANKS,

Art Keene
