Event Description

A tale of greed and courage, folly and foward-thinking, "The Last Mountain" is brimming with the coal hard facts and vivid testimony from the hardscrabble people whose lives are intertwined with coal.

Introductory comments by Special Guest State Representative Kent Williams. 

200,000 Tennesseans work in the tourism industry. Less than 400 work in mining. The mountains are destroyed for cheap coal. It gets sold to China. The profits go to Texas and WV congolomerates. What do we get? Sick! And scraped-off mountaintops - coming to a mountain near you, unless you act NOW! (Our people beat Ferguson at King's Mountain. We can beat Big Coal on all the others!)
