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.


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.
