In the early twentieth century, Mr. John J. Wright championed for the education of African American students in
Spotsylvania County, Virginia. One hundred years later, the museum that bears his name, endeavors to continue his legacy. This year, as the museum approaches its 10th anniversary, its goal is to implement various educational programs designed for the young and old alike. Please check back on this, our “EDUCATION” page,
for updates as we continue to build our website.
