This groundbreaking film places the history of safer sex education on a trajectory with current HIV prevention while exploring the personal, political and structural challenges that have continually hampered the best efforts of HIV educators and community groups to curb HIV infection rates in the US. Filmmaker Jean Carlomusto and Waheedah Shabazz and Toni Young -- both in the documentary itself -- will attend the screening and lead a Q&A immediately following the film.
