Loni Wright

Colonial National Historical Park

Loni Wright is from Bedford, Virginia. She recently graduated from William & Mary with a B.S. degree in Philosophy & Theatre with a specialty in set design. Over the course of her college career, Loni dedicated herself to diversity, equity, and inclusion work via the creation and engagement in numerous clubs, projects, and task forces designed to mitigate inequities both in higher education and the way we discuss U.S. history. By working at a historical park she hopes to convey the idea that a popular history doesn't necessarily mean a true history, as well as the importance of who is included at the table when discussing and interpreting the past. She is very excited to connect the greater community to the work happening in the park.
