Join Shaun Slifer as he will be discussing his research into the Appalachian Movement Press, an activist printshop which ran from 1969-1979 in Huntington, West Virginia. AMP served as a go-to printshop for Appalachian regional organizers and their anti-copyright publications, which documented local corruption and served as an integral voice in the Appalachian identity movement of the 1970s. His article about AMP, "So Much To Be Angry About," was just published in Signal: A Journal of International Political Graphics and Culture. He'll talk about his process of digging up buried histories as a self-taught researcher/history writer.

Shaun Slifer is a working member of the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative, and the exhibition designer at the West Virginia Mine Wars Museum in Matewan, WV
