“Behind Closed Doors”
A Real-Life Conversation about Domestic Violence
Black women are nearly 3x more likely to die from domestic violence. This is an ugly statistic, a statistic that hits close to home, my cousin, was pregnant, and murdered by her boyfriend. The sad reality is a significant number of black women are enduring brutality and violence “Behind Closed Doors.” The case of Marissa Alexander caused a national uproar when Marissa was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot in the air to defend herself against her abusive husband. Marissa Alexander now home from prison, has joined me for a Real-Life Conversation about her personal experience with domestic violence.
