The number of HIV/AIDS cases among women in America has more than tripled in the past thirty years.
One in four Americans living with HIV is a woman and of those women, 82 percent are women of color.
Black women make up just 14 percent of the population, but they account for 66 percent of all women living with HIV, a rate that is almost 20 times that for whites.
“My America” is an intimate look at how poverty, poor health care access, drug addiction and domestic and sexual violence play a role in putting black women at increased risk for HIV. The story is told from the personal lens of black women in America who are living with HIV, and those who have experienced poverty, homelessness and who have struggled with addictions.
