African Americans encounter a high rate of imprisonment and the social, economic, mental, and other effects of imprisonment are extended to their families and communities. In addition to separating individuals from their families and communities, incarceration maximizes the probability for fractured relationships, fragmented communities, and encumbers the public service systems. Data for this qualitative study was collected from eight individuals who had significant relationships with incarcerated African American males.

Objectives:

  • Participants will gain insights into various lived experiences of individuals who have incarcerated African American male family members.
  • Participants will discuss the importance of acknowledging familial experiences as they cope with the incarceration of their African American male loved one.
  • Participants will explore the paucity that exists in shedding light on familial struggles as incarceration changes the dynamics of their homes and lives in general.
