Abstract: Leininger's Theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality guided this metasynthesis to discover new transcultural knowledge as it relates to care provided to the African American community. Three themes were abstracted from the review including the view of health and wellbeing, socio-structural factors of spirituality, kinship and technology, and similarities as well as differences in professional and generic care. The conclusion is that proactive implementation of these care strategies can assist in eliminating the current health disparities experienced by African Americans.
