This year, the Detroit Historical Museum honors the great legacy of toil and resistance in the Black community via the urban agricultire movement. 

African Americans have a unique relationship to land as a way of belonging and place making. From the largely agrarian South to an industrial North, Black Americans have used gardens as a means to sustain and also to remember.
