Dr. Jorgensen writes: “I was born into a middle-class Black community in D. C. in 1941. I was part of the largest entering class of Blacks ever at Harvard in fall of 1958, served in the first Nepal group in the Peace Corps 1962-1964, and entered Social Psychology at Michigan in 1964 where I was the only Black student entering in either Psychology or Sociology that year and had only one Black student ahead of me in either department. After obtaining my doctorate I taught at the University of California at Davis for about 35 years, chairing the African American Studies curriculum committee for almost all of that time. I have published papers on Black personality and culture, racism in social science, and African American social science thought. At 79 I am retired but still teach first year seminars at U. C. Davis, small discussion classes that pay a little research money. My preferences are Black Lives and Selected Readings in Personal Growth and Interpersonal Dynamics.” Sign up for 10% off of Shrink Rap Radio CE credits at the Zur Institute
