Meet the people — filmmakers, students scientist-educators, and community members — who participated in the “Why Us? Left Behind and Dying” Project. The video module, “The Project Begins,” provides an introduction to the people and places involved in the development of this curriculum and the “Why Us” documentary.

As you start this curriculum, leave preconceptions behind and open your mind so that you can open the door for those you serve — students, neighborhood youth, clients, community members — to an investigative learning process focused on uncovering the reasons why Africans and African Americans are disproportionately impacted by HIV and AIDS. Help dispel common myths and make connections between the community you serve and social determinants of health.
