    221 views 2 days ago
    #BlackBirdersWeek is an online event created with the goal of promoting and encouraging the inclusion of Black people in science and nature communities traditionally dominated by white people. Live Science spoke with two of the event's organizers, Danielle Belleny, a wildlife biologist based in San Antonio, Texas, and Sheridan Alford, an environmental educator based in Athens, Georgia, who is better known on social media as Beanie Jean. Belleny and Alford are part of a group of about 30 black scientists who created #BlackBirdersWeek. The event is hosted by the @BlackAFinSTEM accounts on Instagram and Twitter, which Belleny and Alford also help manage.
