World AIDS Day: Shakirah Namwanje & Jamie Brickhouse

SHARE World AIDS Day: Shakirah Namwanje & Jamie Brickhouse

2018 is the year Nelson Mandela would have turned 100. This episode is dedicated to the values he fought for: promoting equity, community service, education for all, and to the ongoing fight to end HIV/AIDS. Jamie experiences prejudice from his dental hygienist when she learns he has HIV. Traumatized after learning of her HIV status, Shakirah comes to recognize the support system that had grown around her.

And a word of caution: Shakirah’s story involves mention of physical abuse.

Storytellers: Shakirah Namwanje and Jamie Brickhouse
