Qualitative Research Design Formulation

I need help in formulating a qualitative research design. My subject is on how black women have been affected by losing loved ones to inner city violence. I am leaned toward doing a phenomenological study but am not sure how to construct research questions. I also need help in identifying the weakness and strengths as it relates to my chosen design and research topic. In the advice, can you also cite scholarly literature that would justify the research as well as the design? A sample of how you would go about it if it were you would be helpful.
