About the Provider

Description: Northside was founded by pioneering psychologists Drs. Kenneth B. and Mamie Clark. Their work—which showed how racial inequality negatively affected the self-esteem of young children—helped change the course of American history.

The Clarks’ groundbreaking research, including the black-white doll studies, were critical to the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, which legally ended the segregation of public schools. Their findings were the first-ever social science research to be submitted as hard evidence in the Court’s history.

Our founders believed in tapping into the inherent strengths of children and families to help them overcome obstacles. This philosophy continues to be the bedrock of our work today. Our goal is to instill, and in many cases, rebuild self-esteem in the children that we serve.
