Abstract and Keywords

In the integrationist era, the social science concerning the effects of oppression on black personality would become a central feature of policy debates. In particular, liberal lawyers seeking to strike down segregation, liberal integrationists mobilizing against Jim Crow in the South, and Democrats seeking to construct Johnson's Great Society would use and promote social science that emphasized that racial oppression had damaged black personalities. The ideological struggles would eventually lead to political developments that would in term have great implications for the field of all the social sciences, but especially the field of social psychology.

Keywords: integrationist era, segregation, black personality, racial oppression, social psychology, political developments
