Black HIV/AIDS in Arkansas 2008

In an effort to share the dearth of information available around HIV/AIDS and African Americans/Blacks, CorneliusOnpoint is sharing the information from the Black AIDS Day portal which has uploaded to their server or provided links to key publications and reports that assist in providing a backdrop to the HIV/AIDS crisis in Black America and other parts of the world. After checking their website, and surveying area organizations, I am proud to announce that this forum will be one of the few local mediums to acknowledge Black HIV/AIDS Day 2008 in Arkansas. What's up with that? Where's the step up or is this just more of the disconnect/complacency attitude that continues to grip the local Black GLBTQ community? Hello-Somebody? Anybody?
