The hip-hop community is well aware of the impact that AIDS can leave behind when someone is taken from us due to this deadly disease. The hip-hop culture lost Ruthless Records owner and gangsta rap icon Eric ‘Eazy-E’ Wright to the deadly disease in 1995; leaving a void in the hip-hop and rap community that has never and will never be filled.

The 1st Annual HIV/AIDS Summit with Rev. Al Sharpton, Congresswoman Maxine Waters and other Black Faith Leaders will be held November 12th in Inglewood, California.

Did you know that Black woman now represent 73% of all the newly diagnosed cases of HIV among women? In Los Angeles County alone, African Americans account for 54% of all HIV cases. AIDS is the leading killer of African American men between the ages of 25 – 54 years old, that is why this is so important.

The Black church has always been the cornerstone for change in the Black community. It’s now time for the church to take a stand to reduce the spread of the HIV/AIDS virus. We need to break the code of silence about the devastating impacts of HIV/AIDS in our community. It’s time for the Black church to get involved!
