Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the one million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children. A groundbreaking FRONTLINE exploration of one of the
country’s most urgent, preventable health crises traces the history of the epidemic through the experiences of extraordinary individuals who tell their stories. 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 turn the tide of the epidemic. ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America, the FRONTLINE special presentation premiering Tuesday, July 10 at 9:00 pm ET on PBS.
