At 18 months, William Brawner contracted HIV through a blood transfusion. The diagnosis thrusts an average middle-class, African American family in the way of an oncoming train of international hysteria as the world struggled to understand the disease. Fearing stigma and discrimination, the family made a controversial decision to keep his status a well-guarded secret. 25 years later, William is finally ready for the world to know that he has HIV.
The New York Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. will co-host a viewing of this life-changing documentary THIS MONDAY, December 1st which is also World AIDS Day. Join us as we embark on this journey through William’s past and present as he struggles to carve out an open and honest future not only for his sake, but for his family as well.
