Cover of Cell – Juneteenth in STEMM and the barriers to equitable science

Congratulations to 52 Black scientists including Dr. Chrystal Starbird, our alum Dr. Michael D.L. Johnson, Dr. Nikea Pittman, and many others for establishing the context of Juneteenth in STEMM and discussing Juneteenth. The authors use the piece, highlighted by a cover image featuring a painting by a parent of one of the authors, to discuss how we can use this holiday to reflect on the ongoing barriers Black scientists face and how we can come together as a biomedical enterprise to tackle these challenges.
