Event Description
In celebration of those pioneers, Black History Month and Women's History Month, an interactive exhibit that features minority women who have contributed to psychology will be on display at Drexel University's W. W. Hagerty Library from Feb. 27 to March 10.


"I am Psyched! Inspiring Histories, Inspiring Lives: Women of Color in Psychology" began as a pop-up exhibit hosted by the American Psychological Association (APA) in Washington, D.C. Now the APA is bringing the display to universities around the country, and Drexel will be the second stop on the tour. The Department of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences and Drexel Libraries is sponsoring the program.

On the final day of the exhibit, the Department of Psychology will host a panel discussion about how women of color are continuing to push the boundaries of the field while still facing challenges. The discussion will be held 2-3 p.m. on Friday, March 10 in 113 Stratton. Speakers will include:

  • Maria Schultheis, PhD, Department Head of Psychology and Professor
  • Danette Morrison, PhD, Assistant Teaching Professor
  • Fengqing (Zoe) Zhang, PhD, Assistant Professor
  • Lauren Johnson, EdM, Clinical Psychology PhD Graduate Student

The exhibit is open to all Drexel faculty, staff and students, as well as the Philadelphia community. Individual self-guided tours are available during regular library visiting hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday). Visitors without a Drexel DragonCard should schedule an appointment by contacting Dorothy Charbonnier at 215.571.4407 or drc73@drexel.edu.
