Try your hand at colorful code-making as students at Black Mountain College did.
A kind of social equality that instilled values of participatory democracy was a hallmark of the Black Mountain experience. Housing at Black Mountain College was shared by all, echoing the first college catalogue’s explanation of the faculty to student relationship; “the relation is not so much of teacher to student as of one member of the community to another.”
