Nikki Brueggeman is an educator and historian originally from Walla Walla, Washington. For Nikki, writing has been a way to explore her experience as a Black woman.

She is currently reading narratives from former slaves to explore the legacy of slavery for Black Americans. Nikki is also an amateur oral historian. In the early days of the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, Nikki began recording the voices of women, educators, and COVID-19 survivors to preserve stories for future generations.
