Check out this link related to the first African-American psychologist Dr. Francis Cecil Sumner and the first African-American female psychologist Dr.  Inez Beverly Prosser who earned their doctorates in psychology in 1920 and 1933, respectively (http://www.apa.org/pi/oema/resources/ethnicity-health/psychologists/sumner-prosser.aspx).                     


Also check out this link about Dr. Kenneth B.  Clark who was the first African-American to receive a degree from Columbia University http://c250.columbia.edu/c250_celebrates/remarkable_columbians/kenneth_mamie_clark.html 

Dr. Clark and his wife Dr. Mamie Clark, who was the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate from Columbia University, are known for their research on the effects of segregation on African-American children known as the “Doll Test.”    See the Doll Test revisited in this Anderson Cooper CNN special.
