Listen in session tonight on SIgnOtHeTiMeS Blogtalk Radio beginning at 6pm eastern. The number to dial is 917-889-8059. The Washington Informer says Welsing was kept on life-support systems until her sister, Loren Cress Love, could travel from Chicago to be with her. Welsing died at 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning from a stroke she suffered earlier in the week. Dr. Welsing was born on March 18, 1935. Both her father and grandfather were medical doctors, and her mother was a teacher. She received her bachelor’s degree from Antioch College, and her M.D. from the Howard University College of Medicine. Additionally, she was a celebrated scholar who studied the origins of white supremacy from a psychological and biological perspective, and was a proponent of the “Melanin Theory,” which espouses black superiority due to a higher concentration of melanin in people of African descent. Dr. Welsing is probably best known for her 1991 book, “The Isis Papers,” which reportedly came about after 20 years of research and analysis from her private practice. It is considered required reading for those interested in the psychological origins and manifestations of white supremacy. A native of Chicago who graduated from Antioch College and Howard University’s medical school, Welsing rose to prominence after publishing an essay in 1970 titled “The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism (White Supremacy).”
