Editorial Reviews

"Out of Control: AIDS in Black America" is the first national network television news documentary on the AIDS epidemic among African Americans--- an epidemic that is spreading fast, but that has attracted little consistent attention from leaders in public health, politics, or religion. In interviews with AIDS activists, doctors, and people on the front lines of the epidemic, "Out of Control: AIDS in Black America" paints a sobering and shocking portrait of the disease, and the failure of leadership that has allowed the epidemic to spiral into a crisis in small towns and inner cities across the country.

I purchased this dvd--ABC News Primetime Out of Contral--AIDS in Balck America--to use in an educational discussion I was leading. I did not view the original broadcast,fall 2007, so I did not know what was on the dvd, but the title fit my need. The dvd content and delivery are compelling! This DVD can be used for family discussions, among friends, civic and church groups. It is that good. Interviews with a very good cross section of people directly affected by HIV/AIDS, professionals and leaders, politicians, and religious leaders are very revealing. Great work--the message is disturbing because we are not doing enough individually and collectively, but the dvd goes a long way I think in making the case that we have been too "laid back" on this too long. I am really glad I made this purchase and I am sharing the content with everyone I meet and know from now on.

in the nearly 30 years since HIV/AIDS has was publicly identified by the scientific community, the deadly disease has ravaged people across the globe, regardless of color, gender, class or social status. However, as it relates specifically to black Americans, the prolificacy of the disease has taken a frightening turn over the years.

As initiated by ABC journalist Peter Jennings before his untimely death, the special examines the issue of HIV/AIDS as viewed through a lens of black America. A wide cross section of individuals- primarily African-American- are interviewed, both individually and in groups. Men, women, gay (and/or LBGT), straight, medical physicians, social activists, and more.

Challenges of economics are explored, and how the lack of affordable health care affects those who are less affluent, and less likely to receive regular medical care.

Federal funding to have drug-needle exchange programs was briefly flirted with during the Clinton administration, but when the Gingrich-led GOP domination of Congress happened, combined with the Lewinsky sex-scandal/impeachment trial, all hopes for federal cooperation were dashed.

An alleged dearth of eligible single black men compared to single black women is seen as a factor; based on interviews, some men are said to gladly carouse, and some women are prone to tolerate it, and not be particularly pushy about STD testing, for fear it will scare the men off.

The criminal justice system is exposed as a factor-- the decades-old War on Drugs incarcerates blacks (including for non-violent offenses) at a higher percentage than they are in the general population.

Good production of an ABC Network story. It was well produced, with great content. I would recommend to others as a good research tool concerning AIDs in the Black Community.
