The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation

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.

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
