Race & Psychology Museum Tour

Display on the Clark Doll Study at the National Museum of Psychology

Explore the relationship between race and the history of psychology on a guided tour of the National Museum of Psychology.

The Cummings Center for the History of Psychology is expanding access to our new Race & Psychology museum tour. First introduced as part of the 2022 Rethinking Race series in collaboration with faculty from The University of Akron Department of Psychology, this tour recontextualizes the National Museum of Psychology by exploring the relationship between psychological science and systems of racial injustice. Guests will examine the power of psychology to both reinforce and tear down racist policies and belief systems, including histories of diagnosis, institutionalization, intelligence testing, and a discussion of the American Psychological Association’s recent Apology to People of Color.

Originally designed for students and faculty, the Cummings Center will be offering this for free tour to the general public on November 2nd and 9th at 6:00pm ET. This free event will give members of the local community the opportunity to explore new perspectives on the history of psychology
