Museum of the African Diaspora information
MoAD assembles an international cast of characters to tell the epic story of diaspora, including a moving video of slave narratives told by Maya Angelou. Standouts among quarterly changing exhibits have included contemporary Afro-Cuban art, post-colonial Nigerian fashion statements, and radical '60s graphics by African American printmaker and social activist Elizabeth Catlett. Public dialogues put art in context, with lively discussions on such current topics as African American archetypes in Hollywood, African masculinity, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
