Black History Quest: Cannady’s Influence

Hey Pionerds, Black History Quest is back! 

Oregon Agricultural College’s (now OSU) Black student population increased suddenly in the 1920s. Could it have been the influence of Beatrice Morrow Cannady?

Join us on Wednesday, March 20 at 7:00 PM as host Mariah Rocker welcomes guest History Investigator Larry Landis to tackle the Big Question: Did Beatrice Morrow Cannady influence OAC’s Black Students in the ’20s?

Black History Quest is a program that peeks behind the process as experts and novices alike take on questions that have perplexed researchers of Oregon’s African American history. With support from The Roundhouse Foundation, we’ve recruited a different History Investigator every other month to help us reveal the hidden stories behind select artifacts from the OBP research files. Each episode, we’ll learn about the challenges and surprises of doing historical research, and try to learn how one source can change history.
