Kansas: A Sign of the Times; A Sermon for Churches

February 27, 2007

"The Church Has AIDS," proclaims a billboard at Troost Avenue and 42nd Street in Kansas City, Kansas. "Our target is the predominantly African-American church because HIV has hit African Americans at a crazy, enormous rate," said Gerald Palmer, the activist who erected the sign. "We're trying to get the church move involved. We're trying to get people to think." Palmer also hopes the billboard attracts new listeners to "A Closer Walk," a radio program about HIV/AIDS that he presents on local gospel music station KGGN 890 AM.
