The Edna M. Griffin Building Revitalized


This video was created to give context to the revitalization of Des Moines’ Edna M. Griffin Building. The video weaves together stories of three individuals: the woman whose civil rights actions cemented the building’s status on the National Register of Historic Places; the woman who worked to support those actions and eventually renamed the building in honor of Ms. Griffin; and the architect who designed solutions to give the building new life while preserving its historic integrity.
