Witness: Seeds of Hope Planting

April 23 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 am CDT

Witness: Seeds of Hope Planting is the third of a 4-part series designed to bring communities together through dialogue. Since Houston’s founding, African Americans have had complex relationships to the land, some uplifting and celebratory, some rooted in oppression and injustice. Join the Houston Parks & Recreation Department for an Earth Week prairie planting at Clinton Park. In addition to the prairie planting we will explore some of the deep roots between our local prairies and legendary Black Cowboys and the rodeo.

Location: Clinton Park —200 Mississippi St., Houston, TX 77029
