HIV and AIDS is the silent killer in the black community and folks just don't want to talk about it but this week I am talking about it on my show.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, African-Americans make up nearly half of the roughly one million Americans HIV. Young adults account for much of the rising number of infections, especially African-American teenagers.
The CDC estimates that more than half of the young people diagnosed with HIV between the ages of 13 and 24 - that roughly 14 percent overall - are African-American. to shine a spotlight on this epidemic I am doing a series "Black Men Living With HIV In America.
My first guest was Marcus McPherson an HIV positive African-American man who grew up in Mississippi and now lives and goes to college in New York City. My second guess was Justin B Terry-Smith an HIV advocate and activist from Washington DC. Today my guest is Christopher Barnhill, you've seen him on BET's 106 & Park, on the cover of many magazines and he speaks at conferences all around the country. He is an HIV/AIDS Advocate and activist from D.C. He was born with HIV but didn't know his status until he was 16 and decided his status would be his mission.
Today we learn who he is, what it has been like for him living as a Black man with HIV in America and what his mission is.

Etan Thomas is More Than An Athlete. He’s been called a “gentle giant.” A “rebounder with a cause.” “The Poet”. Thomas defies the stereotype of the apolitical athlete, and plants his roots in his budding literary career with the conviction of a Bill Russell, and poetic finesse of Muhammad Ali. Born in Harlem and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Thomas’ childhood was surrounded by books on the civil rights movement, politics and the 1960′s. He was greatly influenced by his mother and school teacher, Deborah Thomas.
In 2005 he released a collection of poems called More Than An Athlete; In January 2013 he released Voices Of The Future a collection of poems and essays from young writers on topics such as Racism, Trayvon Martin, President Obama, Gun Violence, Aids etc. On May of 2012 he released Fatherhood (Rising To The Ultimate Challenge) and his writings have appeared in CNN, ESPN, The Washington Post, Huff Post, Hoopshype.com and slamonline, and he co-hosts the radio program "The Collision: Sports and Politics with Etan Thomas & Dave Zirin.
