Women with HIV/AIDS 'Remake' Their Lives, And A Look At The Chicago Origins Of House Music

SHARE Women with HIV/AIDS 'Remake' Their Lives, And A Look At The Chicago Origins Of House Music

Northwestern University sociology and African-American studies professor Celeste Watkins-Hayes spent a decade documenting the lives of more than 100 Chicago women living with HIV/AIDS. 

Her new book Remaking a Life: How Women Living with HIV/AIDS Confront Inequality chronicles a number of obstacles women face before their diagnoses. But the book is not a collection of stories of despair.

We also talk to Chicago producer and DJ Terry Hunter about the Chosen Few Picnic and Festival—a huge single-day house music festival happening on Saturday in Jackson Park.
