Film: The Melungeons

I’d never heard the term Melungeon until I worked at Wired. While I was there our science writer Kristen Philipkoski wrote a series of pieces about genetics and Appalachia.

Since then, I’ve learned a bit more here and there but I’d be lying if I said I knew much beyond the blurbs I’ve read here and there.

I’m hopeful that this documentary will get released either in a run where I can catch it in the theater or on Netflix, iTunes, or Amazon so that I can watch it at home.
