Participate in Research

Our research takes place in community settings. For The Black LIFE study, we are inviting a random sample of folks from Harlem and Bed-Stuy to participate. Random means we are randomly choosing addresses in those neighborhoods, and will then ask individuals who live there if they are interested in participating. So for this study, if you live in one of those neighborhoods, there is a chance that we might be coming by!

Other than that, we sometimes have smaller projects going on. These projects are shorter surveys or interviews on different topics about the African American experience. We usually do them with people we see passing by on the street, or with people who heard about us or saw an ad, and are interested. If you would like to hear about any smaller projects, please contact us! You can send an email to

You can see the newsletter we sent to participants in Project REACH here. If you participated in Project URBAN and would like a newsletter when we have results, please send us an email and we'll put you on the list.

Thank you!
