Also the City of Seattle is showing a great video on February 16th. Learn about civil rights issues and health care struggle around the AIDS crisis in Seattle circa 1980

The onset of AIDS “was a health crisis, but it was also a civil rights crisis,” recalls Carol Sterling, former director of the Chicken Soup Brigade. This week, Community Stories looks back to the 1980’s and the start of the AIDS epidemic in Seattle. The history is told through the words of people--including Sterling, City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, Seattle Gay News Editor George Bakan and AIDS Program Director/King County Bob Wood--who lived and worked on the front lines in the community.
