In this chapter, we provide a comprehensive review of the history of racial and ethnic minority psychology across five groups: African Americans, American Indians/Alaskan Natives, Asian Americans, Latinos, and Native Hawaiians. The coverage of this topic in the Handbook of Psychology is quite fitting and serves as a counterpoint to historical neglect of the contributions of people of color in American psychology. The chapter also includes pertinent the historical details regarding the scientific and professional development of racial and ethnic minority psychology in the United States. In addition to the review for each of the racial and ethnic minority groups, we provide a unique integrated timeline that chronicles the major historical milestones for these groups, as well as some related events in U.S. history.
