Pre-NBHAAD Commemoration Ceremony

Community came together on the lawn at the Carl Bean House, home of In The Meantime. This year’s event was hosted by the Brothers of In The Meantime and the Black AIDS Monument Planning Committee. A select group of community stakeholders met in person on ZOOM and Facebook live for, ‘We’re Not Done Yet’, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day Commemoration Ceremony. A beautiful wreath was layed at the site of the Black AIDS Monument to honor the lives of those we’ve lost along the way.

The afternoons program was framed by Gabriel Maldonado, Michael Fields, Pastor Sammie Haynes, Pastor Benjamin Carlton, Rev Russell Thornhill, Jeffrey King and Greg Wilson.
Community came together to celebrate the outstanding contributions of Fila Masters Portman, Claudia Spears, Parnell Damone Marcano, and Dr. Condessa M. Curley.
A special thanks to all of our community partners for all that you bring to our community.
