Black Flora profiles the story of African American flower farmers, designers, florists, and more. Each person profiled has shared how they came to flowers. The profiles capture why they find creative freedom and joy in their horticultural pursuits. Working the land as farmers comes naturally to many African Americans. Working with flowers – whether flower farming, repurposing, or designing – we are not a monolith. This creativity is in our DNA…we simply must unleash it as we honor our ancestry. I am honored to share these profiles in this book.
