Every ten minutes, someone in the United States contracts HIV. Half are Black. Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the one million people in the U.S. infected with HIV are black men, women and children. ""If Black America was a country unto itself, it would have the 16th worst epidemic in the world,"" says Phill Wilson, head of the Black AIDS Institute.

Endgame: AIDS in Black America is a groundbreaking two-hour exploration of one of the country's most urgent, preventable health crises written, produced, and directed by Renata Simone, the producer of the 2006 award-winning FRONTLINE series, The Age of AIDS. This film traces the history of the epidemic through the experiences of extraordinary individuals. Hear the stories of people like Nel, a 63-year-old grandmother who married a deacon in her church and later found an HIV diagnosis tucked into his Bible; Tom and Keith, who call themselves ""Bornies,"" survivors who were children born with the virus in the early 1990s; and Jovanté, a high school football player who didn't realize what HIV meant until it was too late. From Magic Johnson to civil rights pioneer Julian Bond, from pastors to health workers, people on the front lines tell moving stories of the battle to contain the spread of the virus, and the opportunity to finally turn the tide of the epidemic.

A Conversation We Need To Hear
Review by Nathan on 05/05/22 review stating A Conversation We Need To Hear
This documentary wonderfully and tastefully illustrates the devastation of HIV/AIDS in the African American community. The dialogue represents people from all walks of life, making it the perfect backdrop for much conversation in the churches, schools, and community-at-large. I recommend this documentary to anyone who desires to hear and continue an open and honest communication about this destructive disease disproportionately affecting the African American community.

Health information a must!
Review by Big D. on 05/05/22 review stating Health information a must!
I really enjoyed this documentary and I think it should be required by all health educational curriculums. The footage extends back to the early stage of the Aids epidemic to the current phase of how its impacting our communities. A must for all family members to include those youths and any others capable of understanding how HIV is transmitted. The key to addressing this issue is supply as much information as possible and this DVD does just that!
