The Lemon Project Mission Statement

“The Lemon Project is a multifaceted and dynamic attempt to rectify wrongs perpetrated against African Americans by the College through action or inaction. An ongoing endeavor, this program will focus on contributing to and encouraging scholarship on the 327-year relationship between African Americans and the College and building bridges between the College and Williamsburg and Greater Tidewater area.”

Branch Out Alternative Breaks 

Branch Out alternative breakers collaborate with The Lemon Project on William & Mary’s campus to learn about the history of racism and education at the College.
