This 11-part lecture series will cover a broad range of botanical disciplines, delve into the historical legacy of formally trained and self-taught Black Botanists who inspired others to pursue a career in plants, and highlight pathways toward diversity and inclusion in botanical sciences.

The videos, along with the educational materials, will be made permanently available on YouTube for public viewing after the live event has ended.
