Curator Sam Bradley and board member Tony Bass reminisce about the works of Lajuana Hood and the future of PAHMUSA.
Ms. Lajauna Hood was a devoted student of both the Holy Bible and the history of the African Diaspora. Her passion and ability to intellectually articulate how essential both entities were and are in the evolution of the African experience and its contributions to the world's civilizations.

what makes PAHMUSA different from other such museums is that we tie the experience of the African Diaspora directly to the past and presence of our contributions to New England. We are partnering with other institutions like The Springfield Historical Preservation Society and Baystate Health to help bring our historical value alive.
knowledge of history is an inspiration for the future. Lajuana Hood was divinely inspired to educate our youth about the truth of our history. She was highly regarded, by her scholarly peers, as an undeniable caretaker of our true history. Lajauna literally walked the walk by travelling to the continent of Africa to further understand her research.
