Harlan County, USA.avi
This film documents the coal miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

Filmed over 5 years in the coalfields of West Virginia, COAL RUSH follows the relentless battle for justice of a rural Appalachian community against a major coal company accused of polluting their drinking water. Husband-and-wife team of independent filmmakers LORENA LUCIANO and FILIPPO PISCOPO shine a spotlight on one of the worst (yet least publicized) industrial contamination disasters in the United States -- billions of gallons of coal waste dumped in the waterways and dwarfing the BP Gulf oil spill. Granted exclusive access by the legal team, and capturing with eloquent cinema verite'-style the local community's everyday life, the directors expose a serious case of environmental wrongdoing from all angles – including the coal company's standpoint -­ while bringing an important story of human suffering into focus. COAL RUSH offers an unprecedented look at some of the most pressing social and environmental issues in America today – concerns over toxins in US tap water, rural poverty, corporate malfeasance, and government failings – through the universally-appealing story of a highly controversial legal saga.

Sago Mine Disaster
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

Coal was discovered in Kentucky in 1750. Since the first commercial coal mine opened in 1820 coal has gained both economic importance and controversy regarding its environmental consequences. As of 2010 there were 442 operating coal mines in the state, and as of 2017 there are less than 4,000 underground coalminers

Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961
Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961 Music By Country Singer Vince Gill Bluegrass singers Ricky Skaggs The film you are about to see was made two or three years after Kennie was killed in this mine. Filmed by Bennett and Doug Adams This The Mountain Eagle News Paper that came out 3 days after Kennie Adams coal mine accident. The Date of this accident was December 12th Tuesday 1961 about 12 noon, Kennie Adams was found on December 15th Friday 1961. This is part of the crowd of miners that gathered Wednesday afternoon at the mine opening of B&A Coal Comp. in Knott County to see if they could help in attempts to find the body of Kennie Adams of Van, Ky. partner in the mine. Kennie Adams was one of four men trapped beneath a roof fall Tuesday. Bodies of the other three were removed earlier Wednesday and Kennie Adams is presumed dead. Large groups of miners volunteered their services as soon as the word got out. This picture was snapped for "The Mountain Eagel" by Shade Frazier. Rescue workers were still searching today for the body of Kennie Adams, Van Ky, presumed dead in the debris of a roof fall which took the lives of three fellow miners in Knott county coal mine Tuesday afternoon, Rescue operation in the B&A Coal Comp. mine on Caudill's Branch of Carr Creek ( Known as Rope Works ) in Knott County were forced to halt this afternoon so more timber could be installed within the mine to help insure the safety of the rescue workers. They were expected to resume when the timbers were place, but observers said there was no indication when the body of Kennie Adams night be found. Men returning to Whitesburg today reported the mine roof was "Working Alive" and the conditions were dangerous for the rescue crew. Bodies of three other miners were discovered Wednesday within 20 feet of the edge of the roof fall, which covered an area estimated to be as much as 60,000 square feet and 75 feet high. The rescue workers said the position of the bodies indicated the men had been fleeing the mine when they were caught by the fall. The three bodies removed were those of Josh Noble of Van, Ky. Sidney Bryant of Premium, Ky. and Ben Sexton of Smithsboro Ky. The men were "Pulling Pillars" at the time the fall occurred, some 700 feet from the mine entrance. State Mine Inspector Bill Wright of Whitesburg said the fall occurred about noon Tuesday. Two other men AC Mullins of Breedings Creek, Ky. and Bethel Hall of Isom, Ky. were able to escape from the mine when they heard the fall start. Dave Craft of Smithsboro, Ky. a team operator was outside the mine. As soon as the news of the disaster spread, miners from Letcher, Knott and Perry Counties quickly volunteered their services for the rescue operation. From the first there was little hope of finding any of the men alive. The first shift of rescue workers was sent home about 9:30 pm Tuesday and told to report back the next morning. Another crew took their places. Cars lined the highway leading to Hindman and the dirt road leading to the mine, which is accessible only by truck or jeep in the bad weather. Bitter cold and heavy rain plagued the men waiting outside the mine to see if they were needed in the rescue work. The crowd outside the mine numbered several hundred most of the time. Miners leaving the scene often had to wade the cold water of the branch to reach their cars. The bodies of Sexton and Bryant were brought to Craft Funeral Home in Whitesburg. Sexton, who had been working in the mine only two months, was the father of a three year old daughter. He would have been 23 next Jan 13th. The bodies of Bryant and Sexton were removed about noon Wednesday. Noble's body was discovered shortly afterward, but could not be removed for several hours. All three were badly crushed The body of Kennie Adams one of four Letcher County men trapped last week in a coalmine rock fall in Knott County, was discovered and removed from the mine last Friday. Witnesses said Kennie Adams, a partner in the mine, was found near where the bodies of the other victims were discovered. He was crouched under a slab of rock, they said, and his body was not mangled like those of the others coal miners.

Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 2 of 5
Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 2 of 5 Letcher County notes the tragic mine explosions that occurred at Scotia Mine in 1976. The accidents are noted as being one of the worst mine disasters in U.S. history. When industrial coal mining came to the mountains of southeastern Kentucky in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it brought both positives and negatives. On the one hand, mining operations brought a steady paycheck to those who had largely lived by the alternating fortunes of farming. Conversely, the mines brought a sense of employment dependence and often unsafe working conditions. By the mid-1900s, mining safety had improved drastically from just a few years before. Battery powered lamps had replaced carbide lanterns and continuous automated mining equipment had taken over for the pick and shovel and draft animals. But, due to the nature of the work, accidents still injured miners. The Scotia Mine began operations in 1962 and was a subsidiary of the Blue Diamond Coal Company. It was located in the Ovenfork Community of Letcher County, about fourteen miles northeast of the town of Cumberland (Harlan County, Kentucky). On March 9, 1976, at approximately 11:45 a.m., an explosion caused by coal dust and gasses rocked the Scotia mine. Two days later, a second explosion happened. The first explosion killed fifteen miners; the second killed eleven. Investigators believed that the explosions were caused by methane gasses that were ignited by a spark caused by a battery-powered locomotive or another electric device. A lack of ventilation figured prominently in the accidents. The explosions at Scotia led to the passage of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. This law strengthened the previously passed 1969 act, which, at the time, had been the most significant legislation on mine safety ever adopted in the U.S. The 1977 law also moved the Mine Safety and Health Administration from the Department of the Interior to the Department of Labor.
