The Black Mountain College Semester timeline is organized by the Center for Appalachian Studies as a space of collaboration among researchers, students, and faculty at Appalachian State University. The goal is to merge together digital projects involving students, original video content, and archival resources on Black Mountain College from the W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection to develop biographical and contextual information that compliments the exhibitions, publications, workshops, and events of the Black Mountain College Semester.
