"Honoring The Works of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing"

October 24-25, 2014
Florida A&M University

The Fifth National Conference on African/Black Psychology is dedicated to the life’s work of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. The conference will honor the works and contributions of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Dr. Welsing has appeared in the documentary 500 Years Later (2005), directed by Owen Alik Shahadah and written by M.K. Asante, Jr. and in the documentary Hidden Colors: The Untold History Of People Of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent (2011) written and directed by Tariq Nasheed.  She is a graduate of Antioch College (B.S.) and Howard University College of Medicine (M.D.), and is author of the Cress Theory of Color Confrontation and the heralded Isis Papers. In addition to being an educator and author, she spent nearly two and a half decades of her long and distinguished career working as a staff physician for the Department of Human Services in Washington, D.C., and served as the clinical director of two schools there for emotionally troubled children. A specialist in both child and general psychiatry, she began her private practice in the District in 1967 and has gained particular acclaim for her work with young people. Dr. Welsing has been interviewed on numerous occasions, most notably Tony Brown's Journal, ABC-TV’s Nightline, the Phil Donahue Show, and many other national network appearances.
