Black History Month: Banishing Stigma – Black Voices on HIV
In recognition of Black History Month and National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), join us for a free, virtual program featuring the local voices from Seattle’s Black community exploring the power of storytelling, the impact of HIV, and thoughtful ways to take action to end stigma.
On the agenda:
Rosette Royale, a story-gathering consultant for Seattle’s The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway will be in conversation with Rev. Harriett Walden, a human rights activist and the founder of Mothers for Police Accountability, about the importance of personal stories in banishing the stigma of HIV/AIDS.
HIV-positive ‘artivists’ (artists + activists from our latest virtual exhibition, “Through Positive Eyes: My Photo, My HIV Story”) – Positively Positive, Edward, and Kia, will discuss the power of honoring and expressing their personal stories. Their voices and actions will offer a glimpse into the lives of people impacted by HIV and ways we can overcome stigma together.
A moving poetry reading by Tranisha Arzah, a sexual wellness educator and advisor.Accessibility: This program will be provided in English and Spanish. Closed Captioning will also be available.
