OAKLAND, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — A first-floor West Oakland apartment will soon be home to an exhibit of photos, banners and posters that explore the history of the Black Panther Party.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Sunday that the 1,000-square-foot (93-square-meter) “mini-museum” will open on June 19 at Center Street and Dr. Huey P. Newton Way.

Homeowner Jilchristina Vest said she decided to convert the space after tenants moved out. She hopes to have the home designated as a landmark and transform the space into a community center.

“It felt like it needed to be something more than somebody’s apartment,” she said.
