Kelly Reddy-Best, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management at ISU spoke with us about a course that she taught this semester called Black Lives Matter: Fashion, Liberation and Freedom. Students Brandon Spencer and Crystal Davenport explained their interest in this topic and how an exhibit was curated by students in the course. The exhibit is currently on display at the Ames Library and explores the history of the Black Lives Matter movement and its relationship to politics, activism and fashion. There will be a presentation by the students on Tuesday, Dec 4, from 6-8 pm at the Library.
We also talked with Bronwyn Beatty-Hansen and David Martin who are on Ames City Council. The topics were the possibility of municipal Internet in Ames and concerns about parking in the downtown area.
