Richard Nathaniel Wright (September 4, 1908 – November 28, 1960) was an American author of novels, short stories, poems, and non-fiction. Much of his literature concerns racial themes, especially related to the plight of African Americans during the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, who suffered discrimination and violence in the South and the North. Literary critics believe his work helped change race relations in the United States in the mid-20th century.

Rick Wright married Juliette Gale in 1969, although they were together before that since the beginning of the 60`s when they were both in college.

The photo up top presently is not Rick`s first wife Juliette, rather it is a photo of Sheila Noble, who was a sometime member of the band Sigma 6 with Roger Waters and Nick Mason along with Clive Metcalf and Keith Noble. The band was short lived.
