Abstract

Presents an obituary of Joseph White (1932-2017), often called "the godfather of Black psychology." During a distinguished 56-year career, White held many professional roles, perhaps none more profound than that of mentor. Additionally, White served as a (supervising) psychologist to five hospitals and three clinical practices. He served as chairman of the California State Psychology Licensing Board for 3 years. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees of The Menninger Foundation in Houston, Texas, and held the title of professor emeritus of psychology and psychiatry at the University of California, Irvine, where he spent most of his career as a professor and director of ethnic studies and cross-cultural programs. White personified a socially engaged psychologist. He continually promoted the goals of multiculturalism and social justice through his practice and scholarship. The author or coauthor of numerous articles and books, he was a founder of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) and a pioneer in the field of Black psychology.
