The Black and Brown Health Fair, presented by Alpha Phi Alpha and the Pima County Health Department Office of Health Equity, was held on Saturday, February 18, from 10-4 PM. This event aimed to provide health services, increase awareness and education about chronic health conditions, prevention, healthy living, oral health, maternal health, and general health and wellness—specifically focusing on Black and Brown Pima County residents. Former Intern Hassan represented AAMSAZ at the event.
Hassan M., Former UA intern for AAMSAZ, stated:
Representing AAMSAZ at the Black and Brown Health fair was a great experience. I interacted with people of all ages, and people were intrigued to learn about the origins of the Museum
I relayed to them how Young Jody asked his Grandma(Beverely Elliott), ” Where is the museum I can go to here in Tucson to learn about African American people who lived around here?”.
People were surprised how this simple question led to AAMSAZ becoming the first and only African American Museum in Southern Arizona.
