Explore the history of the Black Lives Matter movement and its relationship to politics, activism and fashion through an exhibit created by Iowa State University students. 

Using historic and cultural methodologies, the exhibition highlights the different ways clothing, fashion, appearance, and styles have been an example of resistance, rebellion, and negotiations of Black politics historically and today.
