Legacy Weekend celebrates and reflects on this past year, honoring William & Mary’s first African American residential students—Lynn Briley '71, Karen Ely '71, and Janet Brown Strafer '71, M.Ed. '77—as well as other pioneering African Americans with a culturally rich lineup of events from soulful storytelling to musical entertainment to thought-provoking discussions and a keynote address. It is the culminating weekend commemorating a significant milestone in William & Mary’s history.


As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of African American students in residence at W&M, please consider a gift to the Legacy Tribute Garden. This garden honors the Legacy Three, those who preceded, and those who follow for all time coming. Give a gift today.
