African American Women’s History at Pan African Historical Museum

A new exhibit at the Pan African Historical Museum in Springfield focuses on African American Women’s history. The most famous figure is probably Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger, but there are countless stories about other women of color who have affected change in their communities and society at large.  

Museum director LuJuana Hood and Janine Fondon, chair of the undergraduate communications department at Bay Path University, join Connecting Point to discuss the new exhibit “Intersection: Untold Stories of Women of Color on the Move” currently on display at Tower Square in downtown Springfield.
