The Department of Psychology at Virginia State University (VSU) will hold the Sixth Black Psychology Research Conference on April 14th from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and April 15th from 8 a.m. -1 p.m. at the Hunter- McDaniel at Virginia State University, Petersburg, Virginia.

A major goal of the conference is to highlight the outstanding research of undergraduate and graduate students at partnering institutions and to promote leadership and community engagement among the participants. The conference will also serve as a platform to encourage the development of professional networks between faculty and students at respective institutions. The conference will be organized around paper and poster presentations, with professional development workshops, a graduate school recruitment fair, and the screening of the finalized documentary highlighting the history of Black Psychology created by Dr. Shawn Utsey. We invite submissions for presentations from students representing all sub-disciplines of psychology. Submissions from undergraduate and graduate students conducting research in fields relevant to psychology (e.g., sociology) or incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives (e.g., Psychology and Political Science) are also welcome.
