Anti-Black racism denies the humanity of Black people. It affects every corner of our society, including academic science. MB&B is no exception. We are calling all non-Black members of our community to action. Tomorrow we will not do the normal work of scientists and academics – no experiments, no lab meetings, no reading/writing/reviewing grants and papers. Instead, we will #strike4BlackLives and #shutdownAcademia and #shutdownSTEM.
