“Crazy how you get them letters and that

make you feel accepted

‘Til you walking ’round the campus and you

the only African

Nobody with passion, just cats that take

direction well”


Well, I’m a black kid in the geosciences, so this matters a lot to me. Not much more to say about it here than that I am hoping we can create a community that is inviting to all people interested in science. There are people who do amazing work in this area and I would be more than happy to point them out to anyone interested! I’ve also included a few resources (some written by me, some by others). Another important thing to me is empathy. And in this case, I mean empathy to those that may be older, unfamiliar, or initially critical of the sorts of justice movements that have been established in many scientific fields. I beg of people not to alienate and attack. I just fundamentally don’t believe pressuring people out of their jobs or trying to make them feel alone is the best way to advance our communty.
