Revolutionaries in Residence

Modern Day Revolutionaries to Inspire You

Established in 2017, Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary in Residence Program honors notable achievers in the worlds of art, media, education and politics to ignite conversation about ongoing national issues while illuminating the link between our nation’s historical roots and contemporary life.

The Revolutionaries in Residence program is generously sponsored by the Grainger Foundation of Lake Forest, Illinois.
