Glenda Hooker Captures Black History

Glenda Hooker, an extraordinary doll artist, will be exhibiting her collection of miniature vignettes depicting events and significant icons of Black American History. Her traveling museum will be on display:

March 7, Sunday 11:00-2:00 301 N. Orangegrove, Pasadena, CA

For 30 years Ms. Hooker’s pieces have been displayed at miniature shows across the United States and Europe.

Her historical collection includes depictions of scenes from the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Thurgood Marshall in his chambers, slaves at auction, Jackie Robinson on the baseball field, Mary McCloud Bethune (pictured below), migration to the north, and many others.

Touring this miniature museum is both entertaining and educational. But the primary mission of Ms. Hooker, is to share African-American history in a way that is appealing to young and old. The series occupies approximately 1500 square feet. Be prepared to be captivated and enthralled by this artist’s attention to detail and ability to tell a story.

Donations are accepted. Your support makes it possible for A Little Black History Museum to continue its mission and supports the long term care and preservation of this historic collection.
