Black Botanical Legacy: Fostering a Community of Equity in Botanical Sciences

Cannon, Brandi [1].

Raising Young Black Botanists.

What's in a name? Is it who you are? Do your traits make you small or tall, bud
or blossom, bright or uniquely subtle? Is it your deep roots, tucked safely into the earth,
grounded in your heritage? Perhaps it’s in your DNA, ingrained in a system that deemed you an integral part of the community: to heal, protect, or nurture. From the perspective of a granddaughter, daughter, gardener, and teacher I'll share the humbling experience of raising young Black botanists.
