This qualitative inquire examined the financial behavior of six college educated Black women located in the Midwest. Utilizing Black feminism as a theoretical framework for analysis, a depiction was prepared on the adeptness of the women at managing their finances; the influence of parental teaching on personal finances; and their behavior toward wealth building and self-gratification. Parental teaching on personal finances greatly influenced the women's perception and how they managed their finances. The experiences and stories of these women help to provide an understanding of how they navigate personal financial matters, their understanding of finances beyond college, and the desire to learn about wealth building.
