The creative gifts of African Americans to landscape design and ornamental horticulture are rarely acknowledged, and when they are, they are often relegated to an agricultural narrative. This presentation reveals the rich 400-year legacy of how African American culture has shaped both the American landscape and our horticultural traditions.
