NBLCA Presents 90 Days Press Conference & Screening

On Wednesday, February 22, 2016 at 5:30 pm at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, 515 Malcolm X Boulevard, New York, NY 10037.  

The National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc. (NBLCA) presented a screening of 90 Days starring Teyonah Parris (Survivor’s Remorse, Mad Men & Chi-Raq), Nic Few, Pauletta Washington and executive producer by Jussie Smollett (Empire, The Skinny & The Mighty Ducks).This powerful thought-provoking short film seeks to create a dialogue about couples and HIV testing.

The panel discussion will be moderated by C. Virginia Fields, president and CEO of NBLCA. The 501c3 non-profit organization educates, mobilizes, and empowers Black leaders to meet the challenge of fighting HIV/AIDS and other health disparities in their local communities. Learn more at NBLCA.org.

Other panelists will include the 90 Days filmmakers Nathan Hale Williams and Jennia Fredrique Aponte, who plan to travel the country with the series that Nathan created called 90 Days: Advocacy, Activism & Storytelling, a series of screenings and discussions about healthy relationships.

The film was produced with the help of the ACT Against AIDS Initiative, AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the HIV Stops with Me campaign.

While America has made significant strides to lower the overall HIV infection rate, Black Americans continue to bear the greatest HIV/AIDS burden in the U.S. Forty-five percent of new HIV diagnoses in the United States were among Black Americans in 2015, who represent only 12% of the population. Over 50,000 Black people in New York City are living with HIV. Furthermore, 14% of Black Americans living with HIV do not know they are infected. The only way to know if you have HIV is to be tested, and this event seeks to educate and encourage HIV testing.

    What do you think about Canada ?


    Montreal, QC, Canada

    Top Answer

    I think Canada has risen so much in my eyes, due to Justin Trudeau. And yet, every visit I've had to Canada has been absolutely lovely. I had one of the best bowl of Pho when I visited Toronto many years ago. And more recently, I visited Montreal, where I had Poutine for the first time and it was incredible!

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    Top Answer

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
