Through this unique storytelling initiative, we highlight– the lives lost, the survivors, the heroes. We share the stories of communities of color being released from the stigma and guilt of their status. We share the stories of hope, courage, compassion, and love. And, we bring to light the harsh reality that four decades later, there is no cure and the rates of infection are on the rise, particularly in communities of color and in the South. The nation – and the world – still struggles with the issues of health and social justice and stigma. As we have seen with the tragic loss from Covid-19, there is much our nation can learn from the past, to shape a better tomorrow.
