Welcome to #BlackInChem! We are so excited that you are here!

In 2020, BlackInChem was founded by a group of women and non-binary people from across the US and Europe (Samantha Mensah, Ayanna Jones, Kathleen Muloma, Ashley Walker, Dr. Devin Swiner, Dr. Naterica Lopes, and Dr. Heidi Nelson) with the goal of highlighting and promoting Black chemists of the African diaspora.

Since 2020, BlackInChem has grown into a robust organization assisting Black chemists at various academic and professional levels. Originally beginning on Twitter as a grassroots effort to connect Black chemists across the world, BlackInChem has grown into a 501(c)3 organization.
