This presentation will present the findings of an exploratory qualitative study which investigates the college preparation experiences of low-income, high ability, Black female college freshmen.  The purpose of this study was to identify the familial, peer, educational, and community factors that influence, positively or negatively, Black women's college readiness. This research is critical and groundbreaking because it supplies  research data on the college readiness experiences of a sample of Black women, a population that is often marginalized and overlooked within the college readiness research literature and it explores college readiness from a qualitative perspective instead of quantitatively.
