Join us!


The Black Biomechanists Association (BBA) welcomes all students and professionals to join in our mission to uplift and enrich Black biomechanists in their academic and professional careers. We have several sub-committees that you can benefit from as a member or that you can volunteer to help contribute to our ongoing efforts.


Non-Black scientists are not excluded from BBA membership or participation. We welcome and encourage allyship. In addition to direct contribution, non-Black allies indirectly support the organization by increasing awareness of our endeavors to the broader biomechanics community. All decisions made and actions taken by members of the organization align with our objectives for the betterment of Black biomechanists and DEI of the biomechanics community.

Free Membership! Allies welcome!




We're accepting donations!


The Black Biomechanists association is so grateful for all of your support. Your donation makes a difference for the Black scientists in our biomechanics community.
