- 1619-2019 Remembering 400 Years
William & Mary, as a public university in the Commonwealth of Virginia and an institution built by and tended by enslaved Africans and their descendants since our founding in 1693, must acknowledge our history and respond to it as a community. In this year of 2019, we mark the four-hundred-year anniversary of the arrival of the first captive Africans in Virginia with an array of projects focused on remembrance: the Lemon Porch Talks, the Lemon Project Symposium in March, the tenth biennial conference of the Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora (ASWAD) in November, and our commitment to erect a Memorial to the Enslaved on campus.
