Dr Nai’m Akbar

“A generation was cultivated with an alien set of priorities [to] only want membership in the predominantly white professional organisations. They no longer understand that there are unique needs that the oppressed communities of previous generations still have, the kind of relevance that led to the formation of these ethnically-orientated professional organisations.

They believe that these black professional organisations were simply formed because they were not permitted in white professional organisations. They don’t realise that there was recognition of some special issues that needed special attention from professionals who were committed to being effective leaders for their communities [and the issues those communities predominantly face]”.

Na’im Akbar (2016) in New Visions For Black Men

Honouring Our

‘we stand on the shoulders of our ancestors. Those who walk before us. If it wasn’t for their journeys
and resilience we would not be here to offer our gifts and be in the position to play it forward.

That is why in UK ABPsi we celebrate and remember our ancestors in both our rituals and practices’. 

Honouring Our Elders

‘Dr Edwin J. Nichols contributed ground-breaking work in African Psychology from his development of his theory of the philosophical aspects of cultural difference.  In particular how environmental conditions shaped the values, behaviours and characteristics of those raised in certain historical settings.  
Dr Nichols was passionate about developing Abpsi in the UK since a professional friendship formed with our UK Abpsi President Rameri Moukam.  This led him to advise and later ship at his expense books to found a resource on African psychology in the UK. We are eternally grateful for his input which led us to approach him to be our UK Abpsi Jegna. The word “Jegna” is more suitable as it stems from the  ancient African kingdom of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) rather than the word Mentor which is of Greek origin.
