The editors are a civil rights worker (Cabell) and an academician (Turner) who evidence a longstanding interest in the Appalachian region and especially in the place and history of black people there. The articles are grouped into eight parts: Basic Approaches, Historical Perspectives, Community Studies, Race Relations, Black Coal Miners, Blacks and Local Politics, Personal Anecdotal Accounts of Black Life, and Selected Demographic Aspects. According to Turner's article on the demography of Black Appalachia, he defines Appalachia as the Appalachian Regional Commission counties in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
