The purpose behind this non- probability sampling, qualitative study is to explore how culture (being African American) and minority status (being a woman) impact the domestic violence experience. Participants were recruited by the author and within the Atlanta University Center Consortium. This study sought to answer two questions: First, what factors put a woman at risk for experiencing domestic violence; and second, what factors aid in a woman’s recovery from domestic violence. Based upon both questionnaire data as well as prior research, the author can reasonably conclude that being African American and a woman impacts the contextual experience of domestic violence.
