This paper is a short history of slavery and race relations at the College of William and Mary from its founding in 1693 to the current day. It synthesizes information both new and known from a variety of sources; it was drafted as a background paper for a resolution yet to be considered by the Faculty Assembly at William and Mary calling on the Provost to commission a full history of the subject.
