Snapshot/50 is a collection of stories and archives documenting Johnston College & Center by some of the writers, artists, musicians, teachers, activists, and scholars who spent time there. This book offers a vivid glimpse into the enormous scope of 50 years in experimental higher education, with more than 70 personal essays and over 800 images. A collective exploration into Johnston’s physical and psychic space, this timely publication will spark college memories and inspiration for anyone interested in radical pedagogy, subversive art, and intergenerational storytelling.
