Shake the Stigma: HIV, AIDS and Atlanta Teens
Read the digital content here!
This team of teenagers took a semester-long journey into stories to produce print media, videos, audio stories, open dialogue sessions, photography and other journalistic platforms. The fall semester was dedicated to creating content that pertains to how HIV and AIDS plays a role within the city of Atlanta. We selected this topic due to the fact that the HIV and AIDS rates in Atlanta are reaching an all-time high.
