INSIDE/OUT: HIV/AIDS PRISON ACTIVISM AND PEER ORGANIZING
Multimedia and Archival Exhibit
Curated by Kat Cheairs, Inside/Out: HIV/AIDS Prison Activism and Peer Organizing is an archival and multimedia exhibition using primary source archival materials from the Judy Greenspan Papers at The Center Archive to highlight the impact of HIV/AIDS peer organizing in prisons.
A vast network of individuals inside and outside of prisons throughout the U.S. and Canada organized to demand healthcare and human rights for incarcerated individuals living with HIV & AIDS. The AIDS Counseling and Education (ACE) program, a focal point of this exhibition, is part of an entire constellation of people, organizations, and publications dedicated to HIV/AIDS prison organizing and advocacy. The legacy of this work is present in current conversations around prison health and the impacts of mass incarceration.
The exhibit is dedicated to the fierceness and timelessness of this work, and has included audio interviews conducted by Kat Cheairs, with current activists involved in prison AIDS activism and organizing.
