Violence in the Household

In this performance of the original poem Violence in the Household, author Rosario Rucoba incorporates the violent aspect of the Charity Lamb case in a more recent example of domestic violence between two parents and explores the effect of that on the people around them. Rucoba explains: "Unlike in Lamb's time, it is a bit more acceptable for both men and women to reach out for help in times of domestic violence. But I would argue that discrepancies still exist within lower income minority groups."
