Q&A: Regina King, Actor and AIDS Activist

regina king(BlackDoctor.org) –When actress Regina King wanted to encourage more people to get tested for HIV, she decided to do something that most Hollywood actresses would run away from as if trying to escape a monster in a horror flick: She underwent a public HIV screening. In 2007 King–a star of such seminal films as Poetic Justice, Jerry Maguire, Enemy of the State and Ray–joined other Black celebrities, such as Sheryl Lee Ralph, Rockmond Dunbar and Henry Simmons, to get checked for HIV as part of the Black AIDS Institute’s Test 1 Million campaign.
