The Last Days of the Appalachian Poverty Tour: When I first meet Jack, he tells me he stopped giving poverty tours years ago and has generally stopped talking to the media about them. He says that if we take this tour together, he won’t stop at anyone’s home; he doesn’t want to expose anyone like that again. He tells me he’s agreeing to do this one last tour only because of who I am: a single, disabled mother with my own lived experiences of poverty. For Topic magazine, writer Alison Stine gives a history of the Appalachian poverty tour.
