Live Chat 11 a.m.: AIDS in Black America
Our friends at Frontline are hosting a live chat at 11 a.m. on AIDS in Black America.
Here’s the blurb:
Every 10 minutes, someone in the United States contracts the AIDS virus. Half of them are black.
Thirty years after the AIDS virus was first reported among gay white men, nearly half of the 1 million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children.
In ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America, producer/director Renata Simone explores the hidden history and personal impact of one of the country’s most urgent, preventable health crises. From Magic Johnson to civil rights pioneer Julian Bond, from pastors to health workers, people on the front lines tell their intimate stories of the battle to contain the virus, and the opportunity to finally find an endgame for AIDS.
