Black-tie kickoff to black birders week


Black Birders Week is back for 2022 — it will run May 29 through June 4 — and Drexel University’s Academy of Natural Sciences is celebrating on May 28 with a black-tie  Black Excellence in Birding evening.

Philadelphia birders have been at the forefront of the movement to elevate Black birding, and the event features Tykee James, Corina Newsome, and the In Color Birding Club’s Jason Hall, the Academy’s Anwar Abdul-Qawi in a conversation moderated by Kiana Habersham of the Academy’s Women in Natural Sciences program.

Attendees who want to dress up, sip cocktails, munch on appetizers, and take in the event can register for $50 ($40 for Academy members and African American Museum members).
