The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, has renamed three buildings and a department that currently honor supporters of the Confederacy or Jim Crow segregation.
William & Mary will rename Taliaferro Hall, a dormitory on campus. William Booth Taliaferro was rector of the university and a general in the Confederate army. The residence hall will now honor Hulon L. Willis Sr., who was the first Black student to enroll at William & Mary. Willis graduated in 1956.
