The Lemon Project Spring Symposium, March 15-16 2013

Campus & Communities: The African American Experience Along the Peninsula

The third annual Lemon Project Spring Symposium will take place on the evening of March 15th at the Bruton Heights School and on March 16th at the College of William and Mary School of Education. Papers will be presented on March 16th. This is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members to come together to share research and discuss ideas.

As the theme suggests, the Symposium welcomes a wide variety of papers that cover the African American experience and investigate the relationship between the College of William & Mary and its surrounding communities. Proposals en- compassing all eras are welcome, but there is a particular interest in research covering the period from emancipation up to the College's present day. Papers might include but are not limited to the following topics: laborers, students, staff, faculty at the College of William & Mary, wider investigations of education, integration, segregation, etc.
