In 1983, Senator Edward M. Kennedy traveled to the eastern Kentucky counties of Letcher and Floyd County during a survey on hunger in America. He was accompanied by fellow Democrat Carl D. Perkins, a member of the US House of Representatives from Kentucky's 7th Congressional District who had built a legacy of support for the underprivileged.
This visit took place on November 23, 1983 and was documented by filmmaker Anne Lewis. The original videotapes were transferred by the Appalshop Archive, and this clip was edited from the raw archival media. visit www.appalshop.org for more information.
