Long Description:
"The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) is a new museum in San Francisco, California, USA, dedicated to the diasporan histories of people of African origin and their influence and adaptation throughout the world.

Focusing on experience in North America, the Caribbean, and South America, the museum's exhibits trace the history and legacy of the slave trade, fights for freedom in the African continent and the New World, music of African influence or origin, and contemporary multicultural and multi-ethnic societies. It is inside St. Regis's new 42-storey St. Regis Museum Tower next to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The museum opened in 2005, along with the condo and hotel tower." (visit link)
