In this landmark collection of personal essays, stories, brief memoirs, and polemics, a broad swath of black Americans unite to bear witness to the devastation AIDS has wrought on their community.

Editor Gil Robertson has enlisted a remarkable group of contributors, including performers like Patti LaBelle, Mo Nique, and Hill Harper; bestselling authors like Randall Robinson and Omar Tyree; political leaders like Rep.
Jesse Jackson Jr. and former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders; religious leaders like Rev. Calvin Butts, and many, many more."
