The Newark Museum of Art presents "A Botanical Walk Through Black History" on Feb. 29 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Dr. Kobinah Abdul- Salim will examine how the histories of the Black presence in the Western Hemisphere are intimately linked to the uses and study of plants and plant-based resources. The presentation will begin with a look at traditional and indigenous botanical knowledge, its impact in the development of commerce and industry, and move through modern-day botanical science and conservation.

Abdul-Salim is a plant systematist with interests in the woody flora of the world’s tropics. He has conducted field research in Africa and Madagascar and worked as a fellow at both the New York Botanical Garden and Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

General Admission is $5 and $3 for museum members. Go to Eventbrite for more information.
