The Fifth National Conference on African/Black Psychology
at Florida A & M University
October 24th and 25th, 2014

Honoree and featured guest: Dr. Frances Cress Welsing

Dr. Francis Cress WelsingFive years ago the Department of Psychology at Florida A&M University (FAMU) founded the National Conference on African/ Black Psychology, an interdisciplinary effort to highlight seminal work and contributions of accomplished scholars in the field of African/Black Psychology.  This year, the Fifth National Conference on African/ Black Psychology will feature Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. 

Now, in the wake of a series of nationally publicized incidents of racial aggression and violence against African Americans in sports, entertainment, politics, and society at-large, FAMU Department of Psychology’s chosen honoree and featured guest is most appropriate.

"Dr. Welsing is one of the quintessential Africentric scholars of the 20th and 21st centuries who has challenged the Black world to critically assess Eurocentric reality and its impact on our mental health” said Dr. Kobi Kambon, Retired Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology and former President of the Association of Black Psychologists.

This year’s conference will also feature “Fight Club” dialogue sessions between students and world-renowned leaders in clinical, social and African/Black psychology.  Notable attendees will  include Dr. Na’im Akbar, Dr. Marimba Ani, Dr. Kobi Kambon, and Dr. Kevin Mwata Washington.

The conference on will be held on FAMU’s campus October 24th & 25th, 2014 in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.  For more information, to register for conference, or to make a donation CLICK HERE.
