deadline for submissions:

During the 2017-2018 academic year, William & Mary commemorates 50 years of African Americans in Residence. As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?
