Interview Summary

Inez Music's parents were from Alabama and she was born in Trafford, Alabama in 1915. As a child her family moved between Alabama and coal camps in Kentucky and Virginia. She met her husband, Ben Music, while they were living in Betsy Lane, Kentucky and that is where they married and started their "housekeeping."

She states that she does not recall a large group of African Americans in Appalachia, but she tells the story of a black woman she met in Wheelwright, Kentucky who had sharecropped on her grandfather's land.
