Maccow- Thomas presented the Power of Knowledge Series segment of the Black History
Month under the theme” Passing On Our Legacy” of the Philipsburg Jubilee Library activities.

and its benefits”. Dr. Tasheena Maccow- Thomas, owner of TEE-ZAN, shared her knowledge
that was passed on through generations as a child from Columbier surrounded by her grandmother
and other family members and their practices using the herbs in their surroundings. As she grew
into adulthood she quickly realized that they understood the medicinal aspect of the holistic and
natural care and usage of herbs.
Dr. Tasheena Maccow-Thomas through her presentation stressed the importance of the usage of
herbs, when best to use them and how to use them to reap the benefits and purposes for cleansing
and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The participants in attendance were mainly adults and embraced the information thoroughly,
asked her numerous questions and welcomed the treat to some cups of tea afterward after a brief
tour into the library.
