Abstract

PURPOSE: To examine representations of African Americans in the grief literature to assess: 1) frequencies; 2) content; and 3) use of universalist or a contextualized framework.

METHODS: We conducted searches in 3 databases that target the grief literature published in the last 15 years. Fifty- nine articles met our criteria.

RESULTS: There are a small number of studies published on African Americans and these tend to focus on homicide. Many studies had incomplete methods. Comparison studies were common and pathological grief outcomes that were validated on white populations were used as outcome variables with African American participants.
