About the Event

Sexual violence against African Americans has  permeated the United States (US) history due to White supremacists' attempt to maintain social control post-emancipation of slavery (Hill-Collins, 2005). This control was maintained through the lynching of Black men and the institutionalization of sexual violation against Black women (Hill-Collins, 2005; Byant-Davis, Ullman, Tsong, Tillman, Smith, 2010; Sigurvinsdottir, Ullman, & Canetto, 2019). Analyzing sexual violence within the African American culture requires understanding the intersections of gender, race, class, and sexuality (Hill-Collins, 2005). Understanding sexual violence within contemporary racism requires one to understand how current cultural patterns have been adopted through the institutionalized of racism.

This presentation will explore the social and cultural determinants of the rape culture within the African American community, and how it fosters and enables sexual violence. Community and cultural practices that normalize certain aspects of sexual violence within macro and mezzo levels will also be dissected.

 By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

 1) Assess identify and analyze social and historical cultural and oppressive factors that have influence and perpetuated sexual assault and rape culture.

2) Evaluate social constructions and intersections that sustain sexual abuse and assault of men and women within the African American community.

3) Contrast the differences of social and emotional treatment of sexual assault victims within the African American community.

4) Integrate clinical knowledge into interpretations and assessment of sexual trauma in the African American community.
