A New York Times review of How To Survive a Plague – The Inside Story of How Citizens and Science Tamed AIDS by David France caught our eye. The review is beautifully written, inspiring and highlights the moving work AIDS activists and scientist undertook to create a world where all people have equal access to health care and medical research. We strongly recommend that you read the review as a starting point of understanding how these activists worked in the silent civil rights movement.
The book’s timely release coincides with World AIDS Day (December 1, 2016).
The Guardian has also published an edited excerpted from David France’s book. Read it here.
Can you spot the CFSC staff member and activist in the 1987 photo? (Hint: That is J Mullineaux in bottom left corner with the glasses and tie!)
