Summary

A close look at black women's physical, mental, and social circumstances reveals harmful social disparities. Yet, for decades, black women's suicide rates have remained virtually nonexistent compared to the rest of the American population, baffling social scientists. In this book, black women speak for themselves about their life struggles and their notions of suicide. Within a framework that explores racial and gender inequalities, Spates uses interviews to uncover reasons for the racial suicide paradox. Her analysis offers a deeper understanding of the positive life strategies, including family and faith, that underlie black women's resilience. Provides insights into the impact of a variety of racial and gender inequalities Vivid use of qualitative approaches to shed light on a statistical paradox Highlights a positive image of black women and their resilience
