(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Beatrice Morrow Cannady
Pictured here in 1929, Beatrice Morrow Cannady was the first African American woman to graduate from Northwestern College of Law (now Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon). Cannady completed her legal education in 1922. In 1932, she became the first African American in the state of Oregon to run for public office.
