Randevyn Pierre discusses “Black Healthcare Stigma and Its Impact: Fowlkes’ 40-Year Fight for Health Equity in HIV”

“Imagine working in an office where you know that everyone who comes through the doors is gonna die.
I remember telling one of my clients who was dying that I didn’t know if I could continue doing the work anymore, because I wasn’t making a difference and I couldn’t keep watching people die.
He told me I had an obligation to help everyone I saw, even if I only saved one life in all the time I worked in HIV/AIDS. That was over 30 years ago.” – Earl Fowlkes
