Watching something like Frontline’s documentary “Endgame: AIDS in Black America” always reminds me that I’m in the minority now, when it comes to HIV and AIDS awareness.About 5 years ago I went on a trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe.

And it’s not necessarily about “black people” specifically  – but more that we don’t really know people that come from different backgrounds than our own. read more
