“Like Painting a Picture”: Gardens of Black Americans

Tuesday, August 17, noon – 1:30 p.m. CDT

From George Washinton CArver to Zora Neale Hurston and more lesser-known self-taught horticulturists, Black Americans have laid out the blueprint for garden design in their own personal spaces. In this presentation and conversation we will discuss these historic legacies and the plants they used to beautify homes and communities.
