of Black Herbalism
When enslaved Africans were brought to America, many of their traditions were taken away from them once they arrived. One exception to this rule, however, is the legacy of herbalism for their medicinal, dietary and cultural usage. Plants such as cotton, black walnut, witch-hazel and dogwood were used for a variety of purposes in their communities. Debra Freeman, food anthropologist, writer, and podcaster, will guide you through this rich history.
