William & Mary News: W&M Libraries partners with local Black churches to preserve important church records. “More than a decade ago, William & Mary began the work of reconciling the institution and community with its history regarding the exploitation of African Americans through the eras of slavery, Jim Crow and segregation. Its reconciliation efforts include The Lemon Project, Center for Racial and Social Justice Speaker Series and Hearth: Memorial to the Enslaved, to name a few. Understanding the importance of the effort, the staff at W&M Libraries looked for ways to contribute.”
