AIDS in Black Boston
FRONTLINE, AIDS, black americaEvery 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 one 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.

Yesterday we spoke with writer, director, and producer of this documentary, Renata Simone. Today we localize the story, looking at the state of AIDS in black Boston.

Guest:
  Dr. Bisola Ojikutu, infectious disease specialist at Mass General, member of the AIDS Action Committee board of directors and assistant clinical professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School
