The Legacy of Southern Appalachian Dance: From Whose Perspective? is presented by Gordon McKinney, PhD Professor Emeritus, Berea College. 
In this final program of the 2017 series exploring the heritage of WNC music and dance, noted local historian Gordon McKinney presents an overview of the significance of music and dance to the social fabric of Southern Appalachian communities.  In particular, McKinney will highlight the often overlooked diversity that was a unique aspect of the evolution of Southern Appalachian culture and traditions.  
Dr. McKinney’s research into the political and social history of WNC and Southern Appalachia draws on a 40 year academic career culminating in his leadership role as Director of the Appalachian Studies Program at Berea College.
