A tough video to watch at times, but the AIDS Legacy Trailer is an example of the kind of real-life stories we're working to document with our oral history film project at Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL). These are gut-wrenching stories of people with AIDS in the 80s forced to return home to rural communities to die, to the very families and churches that had ousted them before. One person sums it up best - it's "a story of the triumph of the human spirit, but it's a story of grief, loss, and discrimination."
You can join those who have already committed and help us honor this important history. Our $1:$1 challenge grant is still on, so give today to allow us to capture and preserve these priceless moments in our history before it's too late.
