Join us for a guided tour of this plant display and exhibit that includes dozens of plants that were grown and used by enslaved Africans and their descendants in the Americas. This garden installation and exhibit illustrate the deep connections enslaved Africans in the Americas had with plants that provided medicines, materials, and supplements to their often-meager food rations; and how today the plants provide joy and hope to generations of descendants of the enslaved and enrich the cuisines enjoyed across American society.
