AIDS in Black America
Every 10 minutes, someone in the United States contracts HIV. Half are black. Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the 1 million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children.
A new FRONTLINE two-hour special, ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America, looks at one of our most preventable health crises. We talk with the writer, director, and producer of this documentary, Renata Simone. You can watch FRONTLINE’s ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America on July 10, WBGH 2, 9:00 PM.
