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 were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward? This symposium seeks to provide scholars, non-scholars, community members, students, and others a platform from which to share their research or their lived experiences on these chaotic and revolutionary times that opened doors and minds.

We seek papers that address and confront topics surrounding the desegregation of higher education in Virginia from both historical and modern perspectives. We encourage presenters to engage a wide range of methodologies and fields, such as American Studies, anthropology, history, oral history, government, and gender studies. Possible topics include but are not limited to: The Negro Education Grants, social justice, the impact of desegregation on historically black colleges and universities, developing infrastructure for a more diverse student body, student activism, student life, NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Higher Education, response of the administration, on campus what’s next?
