Museum of the African Diaspora
The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) is a museum in San Francisco that showcases the history, art, and cultural richness that resulted from the migration of Africans throughout the world. The museum espouses the scientifically accepted idea of panethnicity, wherein all humans have a common African origin.
The museum presents temporary exhibitions related to its mission. Past exhibitions included "Drapetomanía: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba," "Crosscurrents: Africa and Black Diasporas in Dialogue, 1960–1980," "Soulful Stitching: Patchwork Quilts by Africans in India," "From Process to Print: Graphic Works from Romare Bearden," "Textural Rhythms: Constructing the Jazz Tradition through Contemporary African American Quilts," "Ghosts/Ships," and "African Continuum: Sacred Ceremonies and Rituals."
