Dr. Joyce Brookshire - Faith Under Fire

She is the author of Soul Food. She has worked with countless individuals in entertainment including Diddy, Deborah Cox, and Aretha Franklin. Her story is simultaneously scary, discouraging, and inspirational. She found out that her husband had HIV and never disclosed this information to her. What's most amazing is that her story is not really unique.

One of the largest issues facing our community is HIV and Dr. Joyce Brookshire addresses this issue in her latest book Faith Under Fire: Betrayed By a Thing Called Love. The tremendously disproportianate infection rate we're seeing among African-American women is alarming. Hopefully this new book by Brookshire will allow us to address this elephant in the room. If we continue this trend of silence the problem will only escalate.

This week, Dr. Brookshrire will be in Phoenix promoting her book. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE come out and support this amazing author.
