Born in Norman, Oklahoma and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Christyn Breathett has always been passionate about African American history and culture. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies with the emphasis in education, women’s studies, anthropology, and dance at Wichita State University.
At TKAAM, she creates, facilitates, and tracks all of the educational programs and activities. Breathett is instrumental in developing cross-cultural understanding and appreciation among museum guests. In the future, Breathett hopes to see an inclusive Kansas fully aware of its rich history that does not distinguish between African American and American history.
