The leading cause of death for African-American women in their childbearing years is AIDS, and 1 in 32 will be diagnosed in their lifetime.

Join us for a free advance screening of the documentary Wilhemina’s War, which will be featured at the Pan African Film Festival, and on PBS, in February 2016. Wilhemina’s War focuses on the impact of the global pandemic of HIV/AIDS across generations of an African-American family living in rural South Carolina, through the story of 62 year old grandmother Wilhemina Dixon.

This screening is organized by Dr. Cynthia Davis for The 35th Annual Black Doll Show – Trench Art Retrospective: The War Against HIV/AIDS—Women of the African Diaspora in the Trenches.

Wilhemina’s War was made by filmmaker June Cross and was produced by The Faith Project, Inc., a non-profit film production company.
