In honor of Beatrice Morrow Cannady

During the early 1900s, in an effort to promote goodwill between people of
different backgrounds, Cannady held interracial teas in her home in
Northeast Portland. Tea and conversation will follow a presentation by Dr.
Kimberley Mangun, Professor in the University of Utah's Department of
Communication and author of /A Force for Change/, the first full-length
study of the life and work of one of Oregon's most dynamic civil rights
activists, African American journalist Beatrice Morrow Cannady.
