Black North American Herbalism, and the associated African American Materia Medica, encompasses 400 years of innovation and resilience in plant science.

Join Shereel Washington in this introduction to the rich history and knowledge of African Americans herbal healers, past and present. The presentation will also touch upon important staples in African American foodways. Samplings of ‘Know your Roots’ tea will be available to take home (while supplies last), as well as a special recipe for collard greens.
