The American Psychological Association's Response to Brown v. Board of Education: The Case of Kenneth B. Clark.
Benjamin, Ludy T., Jr.; Crouse, Ellen M.
American Psychologist, v57 n1 p38-50 Jan 2002
Describes African American psychologist Kenneth B. Clark's role in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education and the American Psychological Association's (APA's) lack of response to scientific psychology's moment in this spotlight. Offers some explanations for why no official recognition was forthcoming, noting the subsequent foundation of the Association of Black Psychologists at the 1968 annual APA convention. (SM)
