Inside Black Botany: A Conversation with the Curators

January 22, 2021
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Event Description 

In February 2020, Rashad Bell and Nuala Caomhánach co-curated the exhibition Black Botany: The Nature of Black Experience. Join an important conversation that will explore the complexities of creating an exhibition that elevates Black Excellence and considers pathways towards decolonizing botanical science, cultural institutions, and scientific collections. What does it mean to de-center Euro-American narratives and reevaluate a whitewashed history where racism, science, and power were inherently entwined?

Event Speakers

  • Rashad Bell, Collections Maintenance Associate at the New York Botanical Garden
  • Nuala Caomhánach, Graduate Student at New York University
