by vivrant thang on the aids crisis
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today
I have truly learned a lot this week and I am so glad to have stumbled on to The Black Perspective in time to participate in this important effort. It really meant a lot to me to pay homage to the memory of my family members in some small way.
From the comments, I know at least a few people have read the information. It all starts with just one person.
I just want to call attention to a few more resources that I’ve come across:
- Visit Avert, a UK based AIDS charity working towards preventing the spread of AIDS on a global level. Read stories from women and men all over the globe that are infected.
- Pick up Not In My Family: Aids in the African American Community book and companion CD
- Read Sheneska Jackson’s Lil Mama’s Rules, which is almost ten years old but so very current
- “Before you have sex again,” view the independent film, One Week. I saw this movie years ago and it’s still with me.
- Check back here under the AIDS crisis category for more on this crisis in our community. It’s not going away so I’ll have to keep talking about it.
