Psychological Challenges Facing African-American Men To Be Discussed At U.Va. On Feb. 24

February 22, 2000 -- Joseph L. White, professor emeritus of psychology and psychiatry at the University of California-Irvine, will discuss "African-American Male Psychology: Psychological Challenges in the Journey of Living," on Thursday, Feb. 24, at the University of Virginia. His talk, free and open to the public, will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium.

White's books include "The Psychology of Blacks: An African-American Perspective," "The Troubled Adolescent" and "Black Man Emerging: Facing the Past and Seizing a Future in America." His article, "Toward a Black Psychology," which appeared in Ebony in 1970, is credited with beginning a new era of African-American and ethnic psychology.

In addition to his teaching and research, White has been a practicing psychologist at hospitals and medical clinics throughout Southern California and was a chairman of the California State Psychology Licensing Board.

Sponsored by the Office of African-American Affairs, White's talk is the final lecture in this year's African-American Heritage Month series.
