SRCD Celebrates Black History Month



Black History Month (African American History Month) is observed annually in February to celebrate and recognize the contributions and achievements of African Americans. It is also a time to reflect on the continued struggle for racial justice.  

SRCD embraces a commitment to and support for diversity in all its forms. With the help of the SRCD Caucuses, the Society is continuously improving its programming and processes to focus on supporting underrepresented groups and tackling systemic racism within the Society.  

To commemorate the observance, SRCD highlighted six Black Caucus members who have made a significant impact on the Caucus and where SRCD is today. Learn about why they chose developmental science, what inspires them, why they love the Black Caucus, and their favorite aspects of SRCD membership.
