Patrick Henry College is the higher education institution
of choice among politically far-right young people aspiring
to enter the conservative power elite. The explicit mission
of PHC is to cultivate leaders to take American politics
and culture back to God, through careers in politics and
entertainment. Acclaimed photographer Jona Frank presents
an honest, intimate, and eye-opening portrait of the school
and its students. Frank’s photos eschew cultural politicking
of the left or the right, allowing readers to draw their own
conclusions about a school and a youth movement with the
potential to produce many of tomorrow’s leaders.
