Dr. Umar Johnson is a 37-year old Doctor of Clinical Psychology, Nationally Certified School Psychologist, Certified K-12 School Principal, and political scientist. He practices psychology privately in Pennsylvania and also serves as a special education evaluator. One of the components of these jobs is evaluating children between the ages of 3 and 21 to determine if there are any educational disabilities or needs that can be met through special education services. Johnson also trains educators and mental health technicians in a variety of psycho-educational topics that include Attention Deficit Disorder and other disruptive behavior disorders.

Dr. Johnson is considered by many to be an expert on how learning disabilities affect black children and how to help schools and parents use behavior therapy to modify behaviors before they become disruptive.

Dr. Johnson is also considered a Pan-Africanist and is an follower of the teachings of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican Pan-Africanist who organized a return to Africa movement in the early 1900’s. While Johnson does not call for a separatist solution to help solve the myriad of issues faces by blacks in America, he does believe something significant must be done.

While much of Johnson’s work focuses on education, Johnson also ventures into other issues that affect blacks in America. The following video focuses on psycho-linguistics and how language shapes a person’s perception of reality. In particular, the video examines the use of the phrase, ‘black middle class.’ This term infers a false reality because middle class refers to a group of people who have some ownership of production means. Blacks to not have the necessary access and control over wealth to realistically belong to any class. To hear more about Dr. Johnson’s take on how language impacts our perception and often times mis-perception of reality, check out the video below.
