On December 1st, 2017 the world celebrated, honored, held events, and stood in solidarity for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st of December each year and it is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against AIDS/HIV, show their support for people living with AIDS/HIV and to commemorate people who have died.

World AIDS Day was first conceived in August 1987 by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, two public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Bunn and Netter took their idea to Dr. Jonathan Mann, Director of the Global Programme on AIDS (now known as UNAIDS). Dr. Mann liked the concept, approved it, and agreed with the recommendation that the first observance of World AIDS Day should be on 1 December 1988.

Although the world has progressed in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We as a global community still have a long way to go.  Our global communities continue to fight against the stigma, discrimination, treatment, and prevention. Lest we forget.  1448968589172[1]

SLAVERY IN NYC

Great News In East Harlem

untitled

The 126th Street depot in East Harlem — one of New York’s oldest bus depots — will close its doors in January to become a memorial for slaves found buried there.

About 7 years ago construction workers first discovered a 17th-century African burial ground at the depot located between 1st and 2nd avenues. The MTA had planned to upgrade the dilapidated depot, which originally opened in 1947 as a trolley yard starting, next year, but community demands to convert the site into a memorial shut that down. Before that the land — once home to Harlem’s first house of worship, the ­Elmendorf Reformed Church, from 1665 until 1869 — started as a cemetery after Peter Stuyvesant ordered African slaves to build a 9-mile road from lower Manhattan to what was then an unincorporated part of the city known as “Nieuw Haarlem.”

There’s also plans to develop residential property along with the African slave memorial. A city councilman told the NY Post “We want to make sure that this piece of history — an important part of New York City history — will be preserved.”
