Hello Everyone! My name is Aiyonna Aviles; hailing from beautiful Virginia Beach, VA. As a recent graduate from Norfolk State University c/o 2017, I majored in History with a concentration in African American and Latin American History. After many years of field research in undergrad, I am elated to have the opportunity to expand my knowledge through this fellowship at the Louis Armstrong House Museum.
A recent graduate of Morehouse College, Jayson is a native of Cleveland, Ohio. His interest in arts and art history dates as far back as elementary school, and since then he has pursued a career in art history with a direct focus in curatorial studies. He has interned at both smaller and larger art institutions, thus giving him a great deal of experience to become a well rounded museum professional.
Greeting all! My name is Robert Wright Jr.-- a recent graduate of Bethune-Cookman University, and current graduate student at Georgia Southern University. I am thrilled to serve as a Louis Armstrong House Museum Fellow and look forward to sharing my research with you all through blogging! Join me as I cover various topics regarding the life and legacy of the great, Louis Armstrong.
