Black Botanists from the Past to the Present

Tuesday, 6th October 2020, 19:00 - 20:00

Black Botanists from the Past to the Present
A celebration of black botanists

Black botanists and their work

When people think of famous botanists, they usually come up with Charles Darwin, Carl Linnaeus, Joseph Banks, Gregor Mendel… they are all white and all male. But there are important black botanists in our history and working today (male and female). In this online discussion we will take a look at the SLBI’s new learning resource for Primary Schools – Black Botanists from the Past to the Present – where black botanists and their work are celebrated. We will also discuss how this resource can be used in schools during Black History Month 2020.

This is an event to coincide with Black History Month https://www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk/
