'The Power of Children' opens Saturday at Sioux City Public Museum

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) - There will be an exhibit showing the stories of children who faced extraordinary circumstances.

The Sioux City Public Museum said that the exhibit "The Power of Children: Making a Difference" goes on display Saturday. 

It explores the lives of Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White and their impact in making a positive difference in the world. 

Through the exhibit, families will explore problems of isolation, fear, and prejudice, by giving a personal face to three major issues of the 20th century: the Holocaust, the Civil Rights movement, and the AIDS epidemic.

The exhibit will also feature community members sharing stories of how they and others made a difference in a special presentation. Panelists will include Ryan Moore and Carter Smith with a video presentation from Ruby Bridges. "The Power of Children Panel" will be held on Sunday, November 18 at 2 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum.

The National Endowment of the Humanities on the Road helped to make the exhibit possible, and it was organized by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
