Baldwin to be honored at Black Psychology event
Former Florida A&M University professor Joseph Baldwin, who is also known as Kobi Kambon, is being honored for his prestigious work and contributions to new studies of African descent psychology at the first National Conference on African and Black Psychology on Friday, September 10 through Saturday, September 11. The conference will be held at the FAMU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Nationally known presenters include Marimba Ani, the author of “Let the Circle be Unknown,” and Na’im Akbar, a researcher in the area of psychology and author of “Breaking the Chains of Psychological Slavery.”
“We wanted to recognize his [Kambon] contributions by having an opportunity for individuals to talk about the work he has achieved,” said Huberta Jackson-Lowman, associate professor of psychology and chair of the Department of Psychology.
“These individuals will share how they have applied the work he has done and look at what direction we need to take in the future as far as the development of African and black psychologists.”
Baldwin is a former president of the Association of Black Psychologists, a national organization of psychologists of an African descent, and has been a leader in the field of African-American psychology.
He has also written numerous books and has assisted many students who have moved on to obtain their doctorate degree.
