An Affralachian History:

The Kingdom of the Happy Land and other post-slavery settlements in the Appalachians

A people unified by Music, Agriculture and the Mountains

Affralachian is the history and culture of black folks born and raised in the Appalachian mountains. The binding tie for the folks in the Appalachians was a strong sense of family, agriculture and music.

 

Affralachian descendants hail from ancestors that harvested herbs from the earth. They created a liniment, that not only supported their economical structure, but brought healing to the masses that surrounded them. Their music healed the soul.

This is our story.
