The Lemon Project Committee on Memorialization, acting on behalf of William & Mary and its Board of Visitors, recently announced a design competition for a memorial to the African Americans who were enslaved by William & Mary. To encourage a dialogue about our ?monumental moment,? the Lemon Project is hosting a conversation, led by history professor and LP Director Jody Allen and history professor Jerry Watkins, for students, faculty, staff, and community members to discuss the state of monuments and memorialization today. As we think about what, how, and why we memorialize, we will discuss how we can use this moment to acknowledge our troubled past and choose to build common cause. Food will be provided.
