Art AIDS America Chicago Panel: HIV/AIDS & Race featuring performance by black as eye wanna be’s Po’ Chop

February 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Race is a vital conversation. HIV/AIDS is a vital conversation. Intersections of HIV/AIDS and race reveal large and distinct trends of imbalance. In the U.S. impact of HIV/AIDS within communities of color, specifically Black/African American and Latinx/Hispanic populations, with youth, and women-identified persons are disproportionately more affected. In 2014 the CDC reported African Americans represent 12% of population, but account for 44% of HIV diagnoses. Our panel explores the personal, political, and systemic explanations for these trends. Panelists include Erik Glenn, Executive Director of Chicago Black Gay Men’s Caucus; David Munar, President of Howard Brown Health; Hadeis Safi of Center on Halsted; Chay Yew, Artistic Director of Victory Gardens Theater; and Sista Yaa Simpson of TACTS.
