Christine & I shot interviews with high school girls, college women, professors, beauty and barbershop owners and their clients, women with AIDS, community organizers, homeless women and prostitutes. The central question of this documentary is "Why do African-American women have a disproportionately high rate of HIV/AIDS than their Latina, Asian and Caucasian contemporaries?"
This video garnered the LAHPTU $250,000 from Pfizer who then partnered with the NAACP to distribute the video as a community outreach program. The program is still being used across the country in schools, hospitals, community centers, beauty parlors, homes, anywhere women could come together and empower themselves against this deadly disease.
