Contributions of Dr. Bobby Wright

The Florida A&M University Department of Psychology is pleased to announce the Fourth National Conference on African/Black Psychology, which will be held November 8 - 9, 2013 on the campus of Florida A&M University (FAMU).

The conference will recognize the contributions of Dr. Bobby E. Wright.  Dr. Wright was an internationally renowned scholar, educator, community activist, humanitarian and an early leader in the African/Black Psychology Movement. Among his many accomplishments, he received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Chicago and was at the time of his premature death in 1982, the Executive Director of the Garfield Park CCMHC on the west side of Chicago, Illinois (one of only two such predominantly Black centers in the country) and the President-Elect of the Association of Black Psychologists.

He was the author of 
two seminal pieces of scholarly work
on racial-cultural oppression and Afrikan/Black mental health: The Psychopathic Racial Personality (1974) and Mentacide: The Ultimate Threat to Black Survival (1979). This year’s conference will honor Dr. Wright’s outstanding contributions across a broad range of concerns in Afrikan life and culture in America, on the continent of Afrika and throughout the diaspora. Africentric scholars, researchers, educators, activists, intellectuals and serious students from across the country and the world are invited to join us in this celebration of the life and enduring legacy of our great ancestor Dr. Bobby E. Wright.
