Celebrate Black History Month @NYBG

This year, the annual celebration of Black History Month at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) honors barrier-breaking pioneers in environmental science and agricultural education and showcases current activists and advocates who are creating communities that foster representation, identity, and diversity in the arts and sciences. Online offerings explore the botanical legacy of the African Diaspora and the influential contributions of Black Americans to contemporary society. From programs that include inspiring performances and conversations to fascinating workshops, lectures, and readings, visitors can learn online and at NYBG about the profound ways in which plants and gardening are connected to community and culture.
