Black Celebrities Who Have Died From AIDS

Arthur AsheBlacks are one of the groups most affected by HIV, currently currently accounting for about half of the people who get HIV and AIDS — although they comprise 14% of the US population.

Many high-profile celebrities have lived and died with the HIV/AIDS as well. The loss of these stars should serve as a reminder of what our community will continue to lose if we don’t educate ourselves, change our behaviors, get tested regularly and get treated to prevent and fight against HIV…which many people forget is very much a preventable disease.
