Abstract

Much research has been done on African Americans' political behavior. However, the role of stressful life events on participation has not often been explored. This research carries out a state-level analysis to determine what effects stressors and their effects have on African Americans' political behavior. Results suggest a place for stressful events in predicting participation. Implications of the findings are discussed.
