AIDS Disease Blamed on Black Women



Washington, D. C. - The Center for Disease Control (CDC) made its first attempt to blame AIDS on black women. After this report, race was counted as a factor in AIDS.

The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) was the AIDS report from the CDC. It made a link betwen black and hispanic women and AIDS. Never again, was AIDS questioned as a disease. It made black women the face of it.
