The Lemon Project


The Lemon Project is a multifaceted and dynamic attempt to rectify wrongs perpetrated against African Americans by William & Mary through action or inaction.

The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation's goals are to:
  • contribute to and encourage scholarship on the 328-year relationship between African Americans and W&M
  • build bridges between the university and Williamsburg and Greater Tidewater area
  • join in the effort to make the current campus a safe, comfortable, and productive space for current students of color
  • continue and expand our leadership role in the growing national and international movement of colleges and universities studying their full histories as they relate to slavery and its legacies.
