Public Programs

Experiences for Everyone

Empowering. Engaging. Entertaining.

The Wright's Public Programs department curates dynamic activities for audiences of all ages, from lectures to film screenings, musical performances, and more.

Public Programs serves a variety of functions, chief among them the organization and curation of our dynamic line-up of cultural and entertainment offerings.

In the past year alone, The Wright has invited the public at-large to enjoy all sorts of special events, including (but not limited to):

  • The premier of a documentary about Aretha Franklin
  • A celebration of jazz musician James Carter's 50th birthday
  • Lectures and panel discussions on public policy and African-American history
  • And so much more!
