Exploring Affrilachia: Frank X Walker

Frank X Walker, noted author, poet, and Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky, shares the history of the term "Affrilachia," his thoughts on identity and place, and ways in which Affrilachian poetry continues to reach individuals all over the Appalachian region.

In May 2012, Walker gave a presentation about Affrilachian identity and read some of his poetry at Shanghai University in China. The presentation was in cooperation with the American Studies Center at Shanghai University, which acts in partnership with the University of Kentucky.
