    Lenora Fulani, PhD

     

    Dr. Lenora Fulani is a Developmental Psychologist and political activist, best known for her two runs for the presidency as an independent in 1988 and 1992. A longtime agitator for Black political independence, Fulani became involved after the 1992 elections in a joint effort with the Perot movement to create a multiracial, pro-reform, national political party. Fulani is Chair of the Committee for a Unified Independent Party, a think tank, strategy, educational and activist center for Independent Politics.

    Dr. Fulani who earned her doctorate in developmental psychology from the City University of New York, is a co-founder and co-executive Producer of the All Stars Talent Show Network, one of the country’s leading youth anti-violence programs and the co-director of The Development School for Youth, a leadership training and career education program for young people ages 16-21. A practitioner of the performatory clinical approach called Social Therapy, Dr. Fulani is on the faculty of the East Side Institute for Short Term Psychotherapy in New York City, where clinicians from all over the country are trained in the social therapeutic approach. She also teaches at the Institute's Center for Developmental Learning.

    Biography

    The daughter of a baggage carrier on the Pennsylvania Railroad and a nurse, Lenora was raised in Chester, PA. A youth leader in the Baptist Church and in high school government, she won a scholarship to Hofstra University on Long Island. She has lived in the New York City area since. After graduation with a major in psychology, Lenora went on to study at Columbia University’s Teachers College and the City University of New York where she earned a Ph.D. in developmental psychology.

    From 1973 to 1977 she worked as a guest researcher at Rockefeller University specializing in the interplay of social environment and learning with a particular focus on the Black community. While at Rockefeller she decided that the problems facing ordinary Americans of all communities required her to do more than just study them. She has combined a career as a psychologist and political activist ever since and currently works as a consultant to several organizations including: the All Stars Project, Inc.; the East Side Center for Short Term Psychotherapy; and the Committee for a Unified Independent Party. Lenora has a daughter Ainka, age 26, now a Wall Street diversity recruiter and a son, Amani, age 22, a construction supervisor.
