In the following multimedia companion pieces to this week’s cover story, “Mountain Shame,” we offer a narrated slide show of images culled from a newly unveiled scrapbook that documents the violent 1929 labor strikes in Marion, N.C. We’ve also posted the audio documentary, Strike, which examines the demonstrations and there effects on the rural mountain town.
