“West Virginia, for example, is the Southern-most Northern-est and the Northern-most Southern-est state in the Eastern Time Zone. West Virginia isn’t really even west of Virginia but kind of up and over. West Virginia was both Union and Confederate in the Civil War. Today, West Virginia is a democratic state that votes Republican. And West Virginia is a state sitting at the crossroads, teaming with billboards that read ‘Coal Keeps the Lights On’, yet we’re one of the poorest states in the nation.” ~ Crystal Good – Affrilacian poet. — http://wvpublic.org/post/poet-crystal-good-discusses-wva-through-quantum-physics Affrilachian Poets #appalachia #affrilachia #strongwomen
