Healing Through The Arts and Media: Ending Domestic Violence in the African American Community

The Spring 2003 mini-conference took a closer look at how the arts and the media, through popular culture, are being used as primary prevention and intervention strategies to address domestic violence in our communities. Through convincing presentations from respected scholars, practical examples from experienced practitioners, and moving performances and compositions by nationally renown and local artists, the Detroit mini-conference substantiated the use of the arts and the media as viable and effective vehicles for primary prevention and intervention that can, in fact, alleviate the incidence of family violence among African Americans.
