  Tricia Brooks

  Senior Program Officer

  Division of Public Programs

  National Endowment for the Humanities

When Tricia Brooks was seven, she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up.  Her answer: a Pilgrim.  The impact of visits to places like the Plimoth Patuxent Museum (known to her then as Plimoth Plantation), the Boston Children’s Museum, Old Sturbridge Village, and the Jackson Homestead at her local hometown historical society, influenced more than that fanciful response.  A love for learning and for history was sparked by those early experiences. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s degree from Smith College and Master’s Degree in African American Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a research focus on women’s political activism and the social settlement house movement. Influenced by her early experiences on school field trips, she spent the first twenty years of her career working to bring history to life for visitors of all ages at a variety of historic sites, including the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, the Curator’s Office of the Supreme Court of the United States, and Colonial Williamsburg.  She is also a contributing author to Interpreting Slavery at Museums and Historic Sites (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014). She came to the NEH in 2013 as a Program Officer in the Division of Public Programs and was appointed Deputy Director of the Division in 2023.
