In the 1930s, archaeologist Luther Cressman made a series of discoveries that shocked the scientific world. They included a cache of 75 sagebrush sandals that proved to be the oldest shoes ever found. He believed people were in the Americas far earlier than most researchers thought possible. Today, modern science may finally prove him right.
Join OPB for a special pre-broadcast screening of Luther Cressman, Quest for First People and learn about an Oregon man’s lifelong search for America’s first people.

This screening is free and open to the public. Screening starts at 7 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.
