Examining the Characteristics of Incarcerated African American Male Sexual Assault Victims & Perpetrators: a Pilot Study

Tawandra L. Rowell

Traditionally, African American males have been disproportionately incarcerated in the United States. Since the 1960s, African American male inmates have reportedly been disproportionately involved in sexually aggressive behavior while incarcerated as well. However, they are usually underrepresented in prison sexual assault studies, making it difficult to document their experiences as sexual assault victims and perpetrators. Prior literature on male prison sexual assaults insists that there are certain individual characteristics that increase the likelihood of inmates being sexually victimized or sexually aggressive. This study was designed to pilot an instrument that will be used to examine the individual characteristics of incarcerated African American sexual assault victims and perpetrators.
