    A Botanical Walk Through Black History Saturday, February 3,  2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., U.S. Botanic Garden

     

    Kobinah Abdul-Salim, Ph.D., Medgar Evers College, City University of New York
    Although we are aware of the many ways in which plants have been critically important in the shaping of human history, there are many stories that remain largely untold. In this presentation, Dr. Abdul- Salim will examine how the histories of the black presence in the Western Hemisphere are intimately linked to the uses and study of plants and plant-based resources. The "tour" will begin with a look at traditional and indigenous botanical knowledge, its impact in the development of commerce and industry, and move through modern-day botanical science and conservation. Pre-registration required
