Lift Ev'ry Voice!

With Abra Lee















Abra Lee is a national speaker, writer, and founder of Conquer the Soil a community dedicated to celebrating the history and art of horticulture! She has spent a whole lotta time in the dirt as a municipal arborist, extension agent, airport landscape manager, and more. Lee is a graduate of Auburn University College of Agriculture and an alumna of the Longwood Gardens Society of Fellows, a global network of public horticulture professionals. 

It was nothing short of a grand affair when a Florida floral business with family ties to a Harlem Renaissance legend launched during the roaring twenties. And when it came time to sell her beautiful blooms, an iconic gospel singer made customers an offer they just couldn't refuse! From the ordinary to the extraordinary, join in as we celebrate iconic Black Americans in horticultural history.
