HIV/AIDS, Women and the African American Church

Women are the backbone of the African American church, community and family, and 66 percent of all women living with HIV in the U.S. are black. Some 87 percent of them contracted HIV through unprotected sex with a man, says Charles B. Cotton Jr. in an article about HIV and black women written for the African American Lectionary project, a source for worship and ministry resources for the African American church. The church, Cotton says, has been uncharacteristically silent and withdrawn in response to this epidemic afflicting the backbone of its community; it is time for that to change. Cotton explores the crisis and proposes a Scripture-based, faith-filled way forward, including a worship service centered on women infected with HIV/AIDS.
