Psychology undergrad receives journal publication

This note from a proud faculty member, Prof. Regan A. R. Gurung: Senior Nick Livingston (Psychology) just received a peer-reviewed journal publication, “Trumping Racism: The Interactions of Stereotype Incongruent Clothing, Political Racial Rhetoric.” Does first watching a video of President Trump influence how African Americans are rated?
