The MoAD Launches a New Venture

The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) is committed to showcasing the art, culture, and history of the African Diaspora, with an inclusive vision. To facilitate this, MoAD reaches out and initiates collaborative ventures with institutions of a similar vision from around the world.

The museum recently held a fundraising event to let local philanthropists know of the availability of their beautiful new space at the ground level of the St. Regis Hotel (685 Mission Street),to other nonprofit partners as a free event venue! It’s an incredibly generous offer. They are hoping to raise money to support that new mission.
