Hispanic Black Gay Coalition to Raise Awareness About HIV/AIDS through Arts and Activism Event: March 26

BOSTON, March 15, 2011— Nationally recognized activists will participate in an artist exhibit and panel discussion examining the impact HIV/AIDS has had on communities of color and the role the arts can play in preventing the spread of an epidemic identified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as a State of Emergency.

The March 26 event entitled ‘It Takes a Village: AIDS Arts & Activism’, will feature an inspiring presentation of poetry, dancing, hip hop and art all with messages of HIV awareness and prevention. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and community forum exploring how everyday people can use their talents to become activists in their everyday lives.


"Not only is there still this stigma around HIV/ AIDS, but we have this notion that activism means being radical, and that you’ve got to be affluent or have clout to advocate for something important. This event will eliminate those stigmas, and hopefully empower everyday citizens to raise awareness, and educate themselves and others." said Uriah Bell, board member of the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition and committee head for the organization’s HIV/STI prevention initiatives.


Maurice Jamal, filmmaker and founder of GloTV, the first urban LGBT network, will deliver the keynote address. Panelists include Kali Lindsey, director of Federal Policy on HIV/AIDS at Harlem United, Cesar Baez, Dominican born artist and HIV advocate, Kevin "KAOZ" Moore hip-hop artist and HIV activist, DeAngela Shannon, entertainer and AIDS activist, and Joel Marshall, poet and AIDS activist.

The event will take place Saturday, March 26th from 5p.m. to 8 p.m. at Zumix Firehouse in East Boston, 264 Sumner Street. A $5 donation is requested. The event will be hosted by the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition and sponsored by the Multicultural AIDS Coalition, Brown Rudnick LLC, and Fenway Health.
