March  Events

We commemorate the birthday of the Honorable Dr. Frances Cress Welsing (March 18, 1935 - Jan. 2, 2016). She was a psychiatrist  in Washington, DC who devoted more than thirty years to the study of the origin and institution of racism and white supremacy.

Dr. Welsing's writings, lectures and ideas have helped many people, including scientists and scholars, understand the worldwide system of white supremacy. Dr. Welsing's scholarly works, compiled in her book; The Isis Papers are changing the course of history.
