An open dialogue with the audience will follow their presentations.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 28, 2011, from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
WHERE: NYPL Mid-Manhattan Library, 455 Fifth Ave. (at 40th Street). Sixth Floor. Map.
WHO: Speakers include
- Jim Hubbard, co-director of the ACT UP Oral History Project.
- Prof. Gerald Oppenheimer, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and co-author of AIDS Doctors: Voices from the Epidemic, and Shattered Dreams? An Oral History of the South African AIDS Epidemic.
