The Uncomfortable Conversation about Slavery, Sex, and HIV

Organization(s): NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals

Apr 24, 2019
3:00pm – 5:00pm (2 hours)
Time Zone: Eastern

The victimization of African American women dates back to slavery. African American women have often been viewed as hypersexual and promiscuous, thus leading to less than "attractive" conversations about sex and sexuality. African American women have been portrayed as sexual objects in music videos, advertisements, and social media. This webinar will encourage dialogue that looks at the intersection of slavery, racism, sex, and HIV among African American women. It will address myths, stereotypes, generalizations, and micro-aggressions made by society that continue to stigmatize, oppress, and marginalize this population. Having these conversations will potentially ensure that African American women are treaty fairly and justly, especially in a society where racism is rampant.
