In 2002, African Americans were 10 times more likely to contract HIV/AIDS than their white counterparts and accounted for 49% of all AIDS cases diagnosed in the United States.
HIV/AIDS is among the top 3 causes of death for black men aged 25-54.
The disease is among the top 4 causes of death for black women aged 25-54 and is the leading cause of death for black women aged 25-34.
AIDS/HIV is of epidemic proportions in the US. A new book, Not In My Family: AIDS in the African American Community, is a collection of essays from those who have been personally impacted by the disease and includes needed information and poignant stories of reflection, courage and inspiration.
The companion CD, Not In My Family: AIDS in the African-American Community, Songs Of Healing And Inspiration, is an unprecedented collection by some of Gospel's best-selling artists including Kirk Franklin, Byron Cage, The McClurkin Project, Percy Bady and others. It will create awareness and encourage a shift in attitudes and behavior that contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS. The CD includes a special new song of tribute and encouragement by New Direction, "You Can Make It."
