This edition: The Low Down on AIDS

Episode Details

Original tape date: December 2, 2009.

On this edition of Independent Sources we tackle the sensitive issue of AIDS among black women. Is the down low lifestyle among black men contributing to the escalating number of AIDS cases among black women? We take a look at the growing divide between people who can and cannot afford their healthcare. Then we see how some healthcare reform organizations are equipping the ethnic media to report on how possible reforms will affect immigrant communities. We also profile a Nigerian journalist considered persona non grata in his country because of his reporting on government corruption.
