Domestic Violence Across the Lifespan of African Americans: Traditional Strategies and Contemporary Practices Exploring the Possibilities of Popular Culture Interventions

The purpose of the 1998 forum was to provide an overview of domestic violence across the lifespan of African Americans; address its prevalence in the African American community; examine historical and culturally specific prevention and intervention tools; and finally, share examples of popular culture interventions. The forum included four plenary sessions that addressed violence at each stage of the lifespan: children, youth, adults, and elders.
