African Origins of Modern Healthcare

September 20, 2023 - March 9, 2024

$5

This exhibit examines the roots of African medical practices in the Diaspora and in America. Of all the acknowledgements of the contributions to the New World, the botanical contributions of enslaved Africans have gone unrecognized. One of the least explored aspects of the history of Africa pertains to African medicinal knowledge. The enslaved Africans laid the foundation for 20th century knowledge about the uses of plant life for medicine.
