National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day: Recognizing Our Resilience

THis National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Dayoffers a national platform to not only re-focus the nation’s attention on the toll this disease has had on the African American community, but to also elevate the dialogue around the issues that are the drivers of HIV infection rates in our communities. But while so much of the discussion around race and HIV seems to conjure up negative perceptions about people in the communities most impacted, today I want to pose a more positive framing for the discussion. We must recognize and trust in the resilience and abilities of Black and brown people lead the way in identifying and applying strategies to end HIV in our communities.

The Fight Is Not Over: Celebrating and Honoring National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

HIV/AIDS remains a significant problem and continues to disproportionately impact the African diaspora. Black people living in US southern states – those infamous localities for the involuntary servitude of Africans, the lynching of Black bodies, and Jim Crow laws restricting Black opportunity and advancement – make up 44% of people living with HIV and 54% of those newly infected. When the President of the United States (allegedly) labels the ancestral homes of Black people as “shit-hole countries” and declares that all Haitians “have AIDS,” the directive of the 2018 National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) theme is clear: “Stay the Course, the Fight is Not Over!”

Continuing Forward: Leadership For Now

I got a call in May 2016. “Jesse we are searching for the interim President & CEO of AIDS United…. Are you interested?” Without missing a heartbeat, I thought to myself, “You must do this – now!” My life changed immediately. I could never have predicted all the other changes coming in 2016. For all of us living with, working for, and affected by HIV in America, 2016 was a year of unexpected change.
