Black History Month with Dr. Mutwiri: A quarter century of service at USask

Let’s turn back time 25 years to 1997, when Jean Chrétien was re-elected prime minister, the blockbuster movie Titanic premiered in theatres, Tiger Woods became the youngest golfer to win the Masters at age 21, and the first book in the soon-to-be wildly successful Harry Potter series was published.

USask employee and graduate Theodocia Quagraine (BA&Sc’16) contributed to a new book on Black women leaders and co-founded the BIPOC Coffee Talk Inc. discussion group in Saskatoon.
