April 6, 2017, marks the 35th anniversary of Dr. Bobby E. Wright’s passing. Dr. Wright was one of the greatest warrior’s for the restoration of African sovereignty. In part one of this two part series, we are proud to present a digitally re-mastered dialogue with our beloved brother from the Black Psychology and Mental Health Conference, at Atlanta Junior college on April 10, 1980.
Dr. Bobby Eugene Wright, was born in Hobson City Alabama on March 1, 1934. He obtained his BSc in Education and MSc in Counseling from Chicago State University and his PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Chicago. Dr. Wright properly diagnosed the quintessential dilemma that faced African people around the globe as mentacide. He defined mentacide as “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a group’s mind with the ultimate objective being the extirpation of that group”. He diagnosed that the only way to restore lost African sovereignty was through the destruction of mentacide, which could only be done with the development of a Black Social Theory.
