What Don't Kill Us Makes Us Stronger

African American Women and Suicide

«Those in the field of suicide prevention and intervention need to know some of the findings in Dr. Spates’s thought-provoking study. The many stories she shares from the women she interviewed are captivating, as we learn how their convictions give them a sense of self-worth. This book needs to be distributed widely into our communities. What a great read!” <br />—Donna Holland Barnes, Howard University <br /> <br />“The book lets thirty-three black females speak for themselves in integrating three explanations—relatively high levels of religiosity, denser social networks creating a strong sense of responsibility, and an inner sense of strength derived from a history of coping with prejudice. It deserves to become a classic in understanding race and suicide.” <br />—Steven Stack, Wayne State University <br />»
