Black In Neuro is a soon-to be non-profit organization that was born in July 2020 in response to the brutal murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd and the prevalence of anti-black racism in society, seen notably with the New York Central Park incident with Christian Cooper. The latter birthed #BlackBirdersWeek which became the catalyst for #BlackBotanistsWeek #BlackInAstroWeek and our own movement #BlackInNeuroWeek. #Black initiatives are not new, and
we celebrate those who came before us such as #BlackAndSTEM. With this foundation laid and the events of 2020 as a driving force our response is mass collective mobilization.
