    1 thought on “Even the Rat Was White: A Historical View of Psychology”

    1. Great book! Lots of historical information. This book kept me inspired times I began to feel overwhelmed in grad studies.

    2. This book gives the other side of the story of Psychology, it's exploitation of African Americans, and details each of the AFrican AMericans who made a contribution to Psychology, which is information you will not get in a normal college text on the History of Psychology. Very informative.

    3. The first half of the book explores ways that presuppositions guide scientific questions, studies and answers--in particular, how racism caused scientists to "prove" white superiority. The second portion explores African American's in higher education, especially psychology, explores their difficulties, and introduces some of the early practitioners.

    4. As mentioned in the Race and Research Symposium sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute.

    5. Important background for critical psychologists but could have benefitted from a compelling argument to carry through the work.

    6. This is an interesting (if somewhat embarassing) look at the white-monocultural-ethnocentric history of the field of psychology.
