A Woman's Story
Overcoming the Shame of HIVeBook - 2004
This book, originally published in early 2004, represents a gritty look at the lives of three amazing ladies. Though medical science has come quite a ways in the intervening years, there remains stigma and challenge associated with the HIV disease. In this hard hitting text, we are left to ponder how we would endure such challenging circumstances. HIV/AIDS is on the increase among Black women, yet there is a silence that speaks volumes in the community, the nation and the church about this epidemic. Have we forsaken our mothers, daughters and sisters in order to hide the shame of our own lack of involvement? What price will we pay for our detachment to the most indiscriminate health crisis of our time? Perhaps there is still hope, if we begin to look at HIV/AIDS through the eyes of those who have been there. . . In their own words, three women living with HIV share their journeys, from childhood, through discovery, to victory. From beginning to end, you will see the human spirit can overcome any obstacle: abuse, unworthiness, and even the shame associated with HIV/AIDS, through the healing love of God.
