HIV/AIDS, Activism, and the Politics of Pandemic

HIV/AIDS, Activism, and the Politics of Pandemic

Professor of History & Legal Studies and Interim Associate Dean in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at CSUMB, David A. Reichard describes the history of grassroots HIV/AIDS activism—especially in the 1980s and 1990s—and how it illustrates the ways marginalized groups advocating for changes in healthcare access, policy, and resources can shape the course of a pandemic. Audience Q&A will follow.

This event is part of Our Community Reads 2021, which is an annual event of the Friends of the Aptos Branch Library, in partnership with Friends Chapters from Capitola, La Selva Beach, and for the first time, Felton, bringing people together to read a book, chosen by community members, and offers a series of related events to the public.
The events aim to create a shared experience that will increase appreciation for our community libraries and for our local bookstores; foster pride in the varied experiences that our area offers; and the enrichment –– culturally, intellectually, and emotionally –– that comes from the joy of reading! All events are hosted online by the Santa Cruz Public Libraries and are free and open to the public.
Registration is required using the blue 'Begin Registration' button found in the section below. Please visit Our Community Reads website page for more information.
