This is an exploratory study of growing up in a single parent, impoverished environment and the impact it has on the success of African-American women in the state of Georgia. The practical significance of this study is to explore the underlying contributing factors of low academic and career success rates, and dependency on government support of young African-American women. A cross-sectional survey design was used to evaluate the effects of the independent variables on African-American women. The research design allowed for the use of a descriptive analysis of the demographic profile of the research participants and for the explanation of the negative effect of growing up in a single parent, impoverished home on the success of African-American women. The results of this study showed that there is no negative effect of growing up in a single parent, impoverished environment on the success of African-American women in the state of Georgia.
