Morgan Powell has expanded the Bronx River Sankofa envelope again by asking us to make the leap from history to reality as we take his latest walk. Just as he made the Bronx River a meaningful focal point in Black history, he makes Trees an environmental counterpoint to the development of the Bronx and subsequently, the development of America. What a rich reward in identifying and understanding why the American Elm is also called the Liberty Tree. Here is the Tree Guide all 60 persons who attended were offered. And all this, literally, a stone throw from the Bronx River! Enjoy the tour video too!
The folks in these photos were actors in an environmental drama masterfully directed by Morgan Powell. Bravo!
