District of Columbia: Raising Awareness in Washington About HIV
August 24, 2009
Congressional Black Caucus members and the National Minority AIDS Council are co-sponsoring an "Evening Without Politics" on Sept. 25 in Washington. The event will focus on raising HIV/AIDS awareness in African-American communities -- nationwide, but particularly in the District -- and on supporting HIV/AIDS education initiatives at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). President Barack Obama has been invited to deliver the keynote address.
Special invited guests will include Bill and Camille Cosby, Earvin "Magic" and Cookie Johnson, Nancy Wilson, Kenneth Chennault, and Kenneth Cole. Angie Stone is scheduled to perform at the event, which takes place 9 p.m.-1 a.m. at the Grand Hyatt Washington. For more information, click here.
