Black in Nature

June 10, 2020

Shaz Zamore, ATLAS instructor and STEM outreach coordinator, coauthors this blog affiliated with the Integrative and Comparative Biology journal. "Having a network of fellow Black nature and STEM enthusiasts encourages us to contribute ideas and perspectives our non-Black peers may not have considered," Zamore wrote with coauthor Alexus Roberts. "In turn, starting these conversations can promote political discourse that may not have otherwise occurred. Simply put, our presence is change."
