About Us

​We are a community of Black professionals in Natural History Museums. We seek to build a stronger connection among Black museum staff, faculty & students and are looking to highlight career and other opportunities for our community. We offer support, science education, and networking for Black folx involved in Natural History Museums.

Reimagining Black folx relationship with the biodiversity of our planet

BlackInNHMs was developed to serve as a community harnessing the power of a collective and helping individuals find mentors, mentees and wellness while occupying the sometimes harsh isolating world of being Black in NHMs.
