Join Jajuan Johnson, Ph.D., the Lemon Project Mellon Postdoctoral Research Associate, for this Lemon’s Legacies Porch Talk in conjunction with First Baptist Church’s Let Freedom Ring Foundation and the Williamsburg Regional Library. Discovering your family roots is a journey, and this workshop will help with the process. This program will focus on resources ranging from oral histories to vital records and historic newspapers used to research African American family history. The workshop is designed for beginners but researchers at all levels are welcome.
The Williamsburg Regional Library is proud to collaborate with The Lemon Project at the College of William & Mary to bring you this special series of talks. Topics will range widely and include African Americans’ contributions to the College and Williamsburg community, and more. All talks are virtual and require advance registration.
