The congregation at one of the oldest Regular Baptist Churches in Jefferson.
Jefferson Kentucky USA Date:1962 Duration:4 min 6 sec Sound:Yes
The lives of Appalachian mountain people in a depressed area of Kentucky, and how they cope with poverty and maintain their traditions and dignity through music. One of the oldest Regular Baptist Churches in Jefferson, Kentucky. The Church nestled amidst mountains. Cars approach. The congregation inside. The priest sings hymns. Elderly and young people seated on benches listen. A man with his head held in his hands. A little girl towards the back. People pray on their knees. They sing 'When I can Read my Titles Clear' from hymn books. Some people sit while some stand. The congregation members greet each other. Miners work at a mine. Miners in mine cars as it emerges from a tunnel. They get off and move away.
