Explore how Iowa was impacted by the Black Panther Party with this new adult program! Des Moines serves as a great example of the long struggle for racial justice that led to the growth of the Black Panther Party and the Black Power movement. Join the African American Museum of Iowa as we explore myths and facts around Black Power, how the Des Moines Black Panther Party worked with education reform and food access, and the ways they changed life for Black Iowans.
