Not in My Family: AIDS in the African-American Community

by Edited by Gil L.Robertson
£10.99   paperback  Agate Publishing (2007)

Not in My Family: AIDS in the African-American Community by Edited by Gil L.Robertson In this landmark collection of personal essays, stories, brief memoirs and polemics, prominent figures from all walks of African-American life unite to break through cultural inhibitions and address head-on how the HIV/AIDS scourge has affected their community disproportionately for years.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that African Americans are 10 times more likely to contract HIV/AIDS than their white counterparts. How can the black community combat HIV/AIDS when denial has surrounded the disease for so long? The contributors to this breakthrough anthology - whether well-known personalities from the world of politics, entertainment, or sports, or just "ordinary folks with extraordinary stories" - offer personal accounts, impassioned polemics, and concrete guides for action.
Not in My Family begins a much-needed public discussion about the greatest crisis facing Black America today.
