The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation

First page of the Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation

Dr. Francis Cress Welsing published an essay entitled The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation in 1970. It is her attempt to use science to explain observable phenomena in the form of racism (white supremacy).

Welsing cites Oliver C. Cox’s 1959 determination that a need for a theory of race relations existed.

A sample of Welsing’s paper can be found on Google books. The entire original paper as published in The Black Scholar Journal in 1974 can be found on JSTOR.
