Multimedia exhibit ‘Psyched’ about women of color, psychology
FSU Panama City will celebrate the accomplishments of women of color to the field of psychology with the “I am Psyched!” exhibit through Nov. 22 in the FSU Panama City Holley Academic Center. The multimedia initiative, which explores psychological science, practice and social justice, will be free and open to the public. An opening reception will begin at 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the Holley Atrium.

About the tour
In partnership with the Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology and Psychology’s Feminist Voices Oral History and Digital Archive Project, APA’s Women’s Programs Office created the first “I am Psyched!” exhibit to engage visitors, especially young women and girls of color, in exploring how psychology benefits daily life. The exhibit originated as part of the Smithsonian Institution Museum Day Live! in 2016. The national tour launched in February 2017 with an installation at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Since then, the exhibit has traveled coast-to-coast with 17 stops scheduled in 2019.
