Abstract: 

This article reviews the docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly,” aired in 2019, which explored allegations of intimate partner violence against the American singer, Robert “R.” Kelly. The series not only gave the survivors a platform to share their stories, but also masterfully wove these stories into a bigger conversation about how the music industry, and society as whole, treats abuse.
