A New History of Black Mountain College (NC) is Published

A new history of Black Mountain College was published last month by Arcadia Publishing.  Anne E. Chesky Smith and Heather South are the authors.  You can find information on the authors and an excerpt from the book in a post on the Appalachian History blog.

Black Mountain College was operated near Asheville from 1933-1956 in Black Mountain, NC.  The history of the institution is fascinating and has attracted a number of authors over the years.  A previous post on this blog highlighted an article by Mary Emma Harris in Artes magazine.  I also encourage those interested to find a copy of the documentary, Fully Awake:  Black Mountain Experience.
