Professionals in the health care and organ procurement fields reveal that black Americans display limited commitment to organ donation. The present study represents an attempt to shed some light on this issue by examining the relationship of selected demographic, knowledge and attitude-belief variables to willingness to consider organ donation within a black population. Findings indicated that only a few of the demographic and knowledge variables were related to willingness to consider organ donation. All of the attitude-belief variables, however, were found to be significantly associated with the dependent variable. Inplications of the findings for recruiting black organ donors and future research are discussed.
