The Psychological Consequences of Being a Black American: A Sourcebook of Research by Black Psychologists.
Wilcox, Roger Clark
This book is the result of a course offered at Wilberforce University which attempted to make psychology relevant to a predominantly black student body. Articles and speeches which were most directly concerned with the psychological issues of the black American were brought together, and essentially furnish a tentative beginning for a viable and meaningful black Psychology. The major focus of the research and writing has been in the area of education, with particular emphasis on learning, intelligence testing, and achievement testing. The book is restricted to the contributions of black psychologists, but additional bibliographical material has been included to expedite more detailed study of topics included. The overall research of black psychologists does not essentially differ from the research of other American psychologists in scope and interest, though this research is understandably concerned with the consequences of being black.
