Eastern Kentucky Social Club
Photographs by Jabari Guthrie
The Eastern Kentucky Social Club was founded in 1969 by Appalachian families who migrated out of the coalfields to mostly northern cities. This organization, with chapters all over the country, was established to provide continued connection and reunion for families, friends, churches and schools within the Appalachian diaspora.
