civic and professional organizations, including several terms on the Board of the NationalAssociation of Black Psychologists, which he was elected president in 1987. He has served onthe editorial board of the Journal of Black Studies and for eight years was the associate editor ofthe Journal of Black Psychology.
Akbar is a graduate of the University of Michigan, with both undergraduate and graduatedegrees in Psychology and has received many honors for his progressive and landmarkcontributions to his specialized studies of the psychology of the African American. Among theseare the "Annual Member Award" and recognition as a "Distinguished Black Psychologists" bythe National Association of Black Psychologists for his outstanding scholarship and research inAfrican Psychology.
The published volumes of Dr. Akbar’s works are excellent illustrations of the unique and special
approach he has taken to the role of an activist scholar. His volumes are targeted to a massaudience. Though the concepts that he presents are highly sophisticated, they are presented ina concise and simple way that readers with minimal education and possibly no familiarity withmainstream psychology will be able to comprehend the ideas from his books and increase theirunderstanding of themselves. Though his scholarly status is unquestioned this area of his workis targeting a much broader audience than would likely encounter his works prepared foradvanced students, professional colleagues and for the dialogue of the academy. He feels verystrongly that truly relevant ideas should be available to as wide an audience as possible in orderthat they may study these ideas and apply them to their lives and to their communities. Themeasure of success for this aspect of his scholarship becomes the number of people fromvarious walks of life that have been able to study these ideas, change their lives and their world.
