Washington Post Profiles Journalist Jim Wooten's Book About AIDS Advocate Nkosi Johnson
November 29, 2004
The Washington Post on Monday reviewed journalist Jim Wooten's book, titled "We Are All The Same: A Story of a Boy's Courage and a Mother's Love," a biography of South African HIV/AIDS advocate Nkosi Johnson, who was born HIV-positive and died of AIDS-related complications at age 12. Wooten, an ABC News correspondent, met Nkosi in 2000 (Weeks, Washington Post, 11/29). Nkosi, whose mother also died of AIDS-related causes, and his foster mother Gail Johnson established Nkosi's Haven, a center where low-income women with AIDS can live with their children at no cost (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 2/4/03). The complete article is available online.
A kaisernetwork.org interview with Wooten, conducted by Jackie Judd, vice president and senior adviser for communications at the Kaiser Family Foundation, is available online.
