Psychology and Minorities
Psychology is the study of behavior and mind, embracing all aspects of human experience. It is an academic discipline and an applied science which seeks to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases.
In my case I've decided to research the minds of minorities. Now when I say the mind of minorities I don’t mean just skin color but also religion, sexual orientation, or class.
Minority the smaller number or part, especially a number that is less than half of the whole number: meaning it could be by skin sex religion or class. But I focused more on the minorities in America which would consist of skin color the racial division that has affected this nation since before the civil war.
Kenneth & mamie Clark
The Clarks were the first African-Americans to obtain their doctoral degrees in psychology from Columbia University. Kenneth Clark was the First African-American tenured full professor at the City College of New York, the first African-American to be president of American Psychological Association and the first African-American appointed to the New York State Board of Regents (Martin, 1994).
The Clarks were influential to the Civil Rights movement and their expertise allowed them to testify as expert witnesses in several school desegregation cases, including Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954 (Martin, 1994). Outside of their research and applied contributions they both served in the community and on committees to make a difference. Mamie Clark passed in 1983 at age 66, leaving behind two children and Kenneth Clark, who later passed in 2005 at age 91 (Butler, 2009). Both made significant contributions to the field of psychology and to the social movement of their time.
Why is it important to study race
Society as an whole
To me in my opinion culture, race, skills all can be something mixed learned and shared if as an society if we can not learn to respect people difference and learn from one another we will never progress things will never change and battles of the race will continue. It is important to study race and culture and the mindset of others to get a better understanding so time doesn’t repeat itself.
