  • This event has passed.

April 27 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Facilitated by jackie sumell, The Abolitionist’s Tea Party asks, “How does the natural world endorse abolition as a strategy for liberation?” In this workshop, participants will circle up and engage with different plants and herbs, some of which are considered “weeds.” Together, attendees will learn how plants have played key roles in stories of resistance and share their experience and understanding of abolition. 

The workshop will offer participants the opportunity to smell and taste teas grown and prepared in collaboration with currently incarcerated people through Solitary Gardens, at The John Thompson Legacy Center in New Orleans. A list of ingredients will be made available at the workshop. Visitors with severe allergies are advised not to consume or engage with the plants.

This event is located at the San José Museum of Art (110 S Market St, San Jose, CA) and is free with Museum admission and free for SJMA members. Learn more at the San José Museum of Art event website.
