Road Scholar is pleased to award the “Road Scholar Asa Grant Hilliard III Award for Lifelong Learning” to Dr. Huberta Jackson-Lowman, Ph.D.

The award provides $5,000 toward a learning adventure offered by not-for-profit Road Scholar, and honors the late Dr. Asa Grant Hilliard III, world-renowned Pan-Africanist, educator, historian, psychologist and advocate for learning through travel.

Jackson-Lowman is an associate professor of clinical and community psychology and recent past chair of the Department of Psychology at Florida AandM University.  Prior to joining Florida AandM in 1996, Jackson-Lowman served as executive director of the Mayor’s Commission on Families, in Pittsburgh, Pa., focusing on the implementation of strategies for reducing the high African American infant mortality rate, and as co-director of the former Institute for the Black Family at the University of Pittsburgh.

Jackson-Lowman now serves as the Southern Regional Representative for the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi). She is also a board member of the Ujamaa Collective, a women’s cooperative in Pittsburgh.

“Education and lifelong learning are crucial to African Americans,” says Jackson-Lowman.  “Understanding, respect and compassion must become integral components of education and the lifelong learning processes that we establish for future generations.”
