ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the work done by AIDS activist Pernessa Seele for the African American community fighting with the deadly disease. Her efforts have led to a national movement to address public-health issues through communities of faith, an approach that is garnering Seele high-level notice. African American people account for 51% of new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. and Seele is leading the fight to get those numbers down.
