ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with Pernessa Seele, founder and CEO of the organization Balm Gilead. Before there was The Balm In Gilead, she was one of the first AIDS educators in New York City. The AIDS epidemic was young it was new. She says that she found herself at Harlem Hospital. And it was during the first three days of work at Harlem Hospital that there were all these people living with HIV and dying all around her. There was nobody from the church. And that was not her experience of the Black church.
