Honoring The Works of Dr. Robert Williams

The Seventh National Conference on African/Black Psychology will honor the works and contributions of Dr. Robert Williams (“Dr. Bob”). Dr. Bob has appeared as a frequent public speaker and has been featured on numerous national televisions programs relating to IQ testing, including CBS's "IQ Myth" with Dan Rather, Prime Time Saturday Night, The Phil Donahue Show and The Montel Williams Show.  His works on biases in IQ testing were also used as a theme for one of the "Good Times" TV programs.  He was featured on Black Entertainment Television (BET) and NBC News to discuss "EBONICS," a term he coined in 1973.   Dr. Williams spent over three decades of his long and distinguished career working as a Professor of Psychology and African and African American Studies at Washington University. He developed the Black Studies Program and the Graduate Training Program in Minority Mental Health at Washington University and served as its first director. He retired from Washington University in 1992 and is now Professor Emeritus.  Dr. Williams returned to the academy (2001-2004) as The Distinguished Visiting Professor of Black Studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia. On  0ctober 15, 2011 he was inducted into the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame.  On February 26, 2015 he was the Distinguished Laureate at the Clinton's Presidential Center.  His specialty areas are effects of racism on blacks, racial scripting, bias in IQ testing, and Ebonics.
