A unique collaboration from two of America's leading artists that explores the fascination and hidden history of the plant world.

In this hard-hitting, witty, deeply original book, the renowned novelist Jamaica Kincaid offers an ABC of the plants that define our world and reveals the often brutal history of colonialism behind them.

Kara Walker, one of America's greatest visual artists, illustrates each entry with provocative, brilliant, enthralling, multilayered watercolors.

There has never been a book like An Encyclopedia of Gardening for Colored Children—inventive, surprising, and telling—about what our gardens reveal about the truth of history.
