Let's Talk about Race and Racism - From Mississippi to Cambridge: Marie Battle Singer, Britain's first Black psychoanalyst
Speakers: Professors Jane Rhodes and Lynn Hudson

Marie Battle Singer was a Black American born during the Jim Crow era in the Deep South who fled the U.S. to build a life in England. She trained as a psychoanalyst with Anna Freud and had a thriving psychotherapy practice in London and Cambridge, where she also became a fellow at Clare Hall and taught in the Psychology department. Despite her significant achievements, the lingering trauma of racial hatred and discrimination shaped every aspect of her personal and professional life. Rhodes and Hudson, authors of a biography-in-progress of Singer, will offer highlights of this remarkable Black expatriate and how she navigated race, gender, and national identity on both sides of the Atlantic.

This event forms part of the Let's Talk About Race and Racism initiative at Wolfson College
