Black History Month at NYBG

Posted in History & People , Videos on February 1, 2021, by Matt Newman

As we kick off Black History Month, hear from New York State Senator Jamaal Bailey on the importance of this observance; the celebration of Black contributions to art, culture, and science; and the digital programs we have planned at NYBG—so you can take part from home.

Throughout the month we will showcase cultural traditions of the African diaspora and explore the influential contributions of Black people to botany, horticulture, ecology, and our collective understanding of the natural world. Discover captivating dance, creative and inspirational children’s programs, important historical narratives, and fascinating plant stories.
