The leading cause of death for African-American women in their childbearing years is AIDS, and 1 in 32 will be diagnosed in their lifetime.
Join us for a screening of the documentary Wilhemina’s War, which will air on PBS and be featured at the Pan African Film Festival in February 2016. Wilhemina’s War focuses on the impact of the global pandemic of HIV/AIDS across generations of an African-American family living in rural South Carolina, through the story of 62 year old grandmother Wilhemina Dixon. This screening was organized by Dr. Cynthia Davis for The 35th Annual Black Doll Show – Trench Art Retrospective: The War Against HIV/AIDS—Women of the African Diaspora in the Trenches.
Wilhemina’s War is produced by The Faith Project, Inc., a non-profit film production company.
