A Brief Overview of Three Fields of Study The idea that Black politics, Black psychology, and political psychology are all connected is easy to conceive given that each of these is a hybrid subfield. As the name suggests, political psychology is primarily a combination of political science and psychology. “As a field of study, political psychology arose from the applied practice of trying to relate psychological phenomena to political reality” (Perez 2001, 348). As it has progressed, political psychology has drawn from a variety of subfields within psychology, including social, developmental and psychoanalytical (Sears 1989) and has incorporated aspects of political science, history, psychiatry, sociology, and legal studies (Iyengar 1993).

Not surprisingly, Black and White Americans continue to have vastly different perceptions regarding the realities of racial inequality. For example, according to national surveys conducted by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC), 66 percent of Blacks but only 34 percent of Whites thought that racial inequality in jobs, income, and housing was primarily the result of discrimination (Schuman et al. 1997). Without doubt, the different life experiences on the two sides of the color line contribute heavily to this discrepancy.

Specifically, the founding members of ABPsi believed that the American Psychological Association was taking “nonsupportive, if not racist, positions regarding ethnic minority concerns” (Belgrave and Allison 2006, 16). As a result, Black psychologists formed a separate organization in 1968, which is still in existence. One of the goals of this new organization was to “address themselves to significant social problems affecting the Black community and other segments of the population whose needs society has not fulfilled” (Association of Black Psychologists).
