The purpose of this collective case study was to explore the transmission of the Strong Black Woman (SBW) narrative and spiritual coping among spiritual Black women. The researcher utilized a social constructivist framework to guide the research process. After a review of the literature, the researcher recruited five mother and daughter pairs for the study. Data was collected using a demographic questionnaire, individual interviews, mother and daughter interviews, and identification of a meaningful scripture. To analyze the data, a cross-case synthesis of patterns related to the SBW narrative and spiritual coping resulted in five themes. Novel findings, implications, limitations, and future research is also discussed.
