REVOLVE: Home School

April 30, 2020

BMCM+AC is proud to have partnered with REVOLVE for this program, which was presented as part of their new Home School series, an online offering of stuff to know, things to do, and people to meet. This program provided a new understanding of the legendary Black Mountain College from the perspective of the women who defined and championed the school and its community.

This presentation told the story of the college, from its founding in 1933 against the backdrop of fascism and the Great Depression, leading through to the mid-1950’s as Cold War pressure and financial turmoil led to the school’s dissolution. By shifting perspective from the men who have so far defined the story and centering the voices of female students, faculty, and staff, we uncover a fuller history of this experiment in living democracy.
