Using the Lester Attitude Towards Death Scale (LATDS), a study was conducted using a convenience sample of 179 Black South African university students to investigate their attitudes towards, and beliefs about, death and dying.

The implications of these findings on several topical death-related issues in South Africa are discussed.
