Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco

There are currently exhibits up at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MOAD) that required shifts of my schedule in order to drop everything, grab camera and head over. Firstly the name Gordon Parks sparks my inner photography groupie, and I was insanely excited to see the works of this photography genius. Standing and staring at Gordon Parks version of American Gothic was worth the trip itself. The second top of the list exhibit are the works of Okhai Ojeikere. These works portray images dating from 1955-2008 documenting Nigerian clothing and hairstyles.This afternoon at the museum was inspirational and all that good stuff, definitely worth seeing before the close on Oct 13th.

P.S. Those head-wraps got me practicing my wrap skills.
