Year: 1992 Source: Annual Meeting of the American Association of Suicidology, (25th: 1992: Chicago), p.279-280 SIEC No: 19940470

This panel discussion focussed on the role of Blacks in the AAS during its first 25 years. It is stated that despite recognition of a societal problem & inclusion of a black perspective on suicidology, AAS’s committment to the issue of minority suicide in general, & specifically black suicide, has been limited & at times, questionable. However, it is concluded that the role of Blacks in the AAS has been significant & that there is still a place for Blacks in this association.
