This qualitative case study used interviews and focus groups with 24 Black college students from a predominantly White institution in the Southwest who studied abroad in China to examine how capital and community wealth influenced their decision to participate and their study abroad experiences. Participants discussed the role of the faculty member who led the program, their family members, their peers, and the Black community.
