Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology

Linda Wright


FOR MORE THAN A COUPLE OF DECADES, Linda Wright has perfected the amazing work of bringing history to life. She enjoys relaying images and sounds in character that create a present setting for heroes of yesteryear to share their victories and lessons learned with the generations of today.

Her stories have been told from the stage in talent concerts, cultural festivals, senior communities, religious communities, museums and libraries.

Linda is continuously booked for elementary and school assemblies with a message of hope for the future and zero tolerance for bullying.

Stories, Fables, Myths and Parables are performed. Coretta Scott King, Michael Jackson, Harriet Tubman, Fannie Lou Hamer and The 1960’s, Zhingha, Queen of Angola (1600’s) and George Washington Carver all have their stories personified by the Bay Area’s most dynamic story teller, Linda D. Wright.
