Black In Physics Week

In the wake of the killing of George Floyd in 2020, a group of Black scientists, primarily in the US, organized the first of an annual week of events to celebrate and amplify the voices of Black physicists and to promote the development of supportive workplace environments. Since then, Physics Today has partnered with the Black in Physics organization and Physics World to publish essays that share the stories of Black physical scientists, from graduate students to retirees.
