Out of Control: AIDS in Black America

With the final investigative work of journalist Peter Jennings as its cornerstone, this program studies the frightening rise of AIDS among African-Americans—a trend that has been developing for several years, but which has gone largely unnoticed outside the black community. Jennings’ contribution to the program is a candid group discussion he conducted with HIV-positive African-American men in Atlanta. In addition to that eye-opening conversation, the program also features talks between anchor Terry Moran and various black leaders—including the Reverends Jesse Jackson, Calvin Butts, and T. D. Jakes—and frank input from several African-American women. (41 minutes)
