(BPRW) AHF-Supported HIV Documentary ‘Wilhemina’s War’ Scheduled for PBS Airing & Screening Tour in the Deep South

AHF Grant Fund recipient, June Cross, directed film that sheds light on HIV stigma and lack of health care in rural communities in the American South. ~~ ‘Wilhemina’s War’ PBS Broadcast Feb. 29, 10:00pm ET & Deep South Tour Monday, February 29th 10:00 p.m. EST on PBS. Check local listings here. Saturday, March 12th 9:30 a.m. at Charleston Black Expo in Charleston, South Carolina. Thursday March 17th, 7:00 p.m. at HBCU Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.


(Black PR Wire) LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), in partnership with the BronzeLens Film Festival, Spelman College Women’s Center and the Black Women’s Health Imperative proudly present a screening tour of the groundbreaking HIV/AIDS documentary “‘Wilhemina’s War”, across the U.S. Deep South, where HIV infection rates continue to spiral out of control.

The eye-opening film, which was produced and directed by AHF Grant Fund recipient June Cross, follows a Southern grandmother’s struggles to help her loved ones as they navigate the landscape of HIV care and services in South Carolina, a state hostile to public health care.

“With statistics continuing to indicate that African American women constitute 65% of women diagnosed with HIV, and the nine states of the Deep South being where 71% of women diagnosed with HIV are living, it was important for us to share the powerful message of “‘Wilhemina’s War”, which continues to shed light on the struggles of HIV throughout the South, where failure to adopt Medicaid expansion and lack of access to healthcare is costing people their lives,” stated Imara Canady, AHF’s Regional Director of Communications and Community Engagement in AHF’s Southern Bureau. “We thank our partners for joining AHF in increasing awareness in African American communities in key cities across the South.”

WHEN: Thursday, March 17th 7:00 p.m.

The screening tour follows on the heels of the AHF-sponsored screenings of the film at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
