National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Today marks the thirteenth annual National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a grassroots effort to bring AIDS awareness into African American communities that is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You can find the official website here. If you watch the video for our Kickstarter campaign below, or at the project page, you’ll see that Pernessa Seele traces the history of events like these to the Harlem Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS that she started in 1989. If you want to find out what’s happening near you, the official site has a handy map, which you can find here.
