PSYC 451 - CAPSTONE SEMINAR: BLACK PSYCHOLOGY
The realities of living in a pluralistic, multicultural society make the goal of understanding the historical, economic, political, and socio-psychological experiences of African-Americans a salient rather than ephemeral one. This course as part of a semester-long exploration will sensitively examine their collective experiences. Capstone Seminar: Black Psychology is an advanced seminar which explores in depth original articles from the Journal of Black Psychology and The Journal of Pan-African Studies presenting methodological and other critiques. Some of the selected topics include: the unethical biomedical Tuskegee Study, HIV/AIDS in the Black community, the social psychology of prejudice and racism, anti-poverty programs, the controversies surrounding intelligence testing and the psychometric movement, and the Black family. Students will be required to do individual oral presentations covering topics such as: mass incarceration, white rage, policing and the Black community, Black Lives Mailer, Black religiosity and spirituality, and LGBT issues. Active participation in group discussions in this capstone course is strongly encouraged and welcomed.
