In honor of World AIDS Day, December 1, 2010, Sheila Johnson debuted her second cause-related film: “The Other City,” a poignant and must-see documentary about the impact of HIV/AIDS in our nation’s capital that aired on Showtime. The film was to stress the importance of taking care of one’s body as well as intravenous drug use as it represents 1/3 of those who get the disease. It also shows the factors surrounding former and current inmates, since these are the truths about the disease. It is a microscopic reflection of what is truly going on in the United States and globally.
Ms. Johnson said is important that we have an open dialogue to erase the stigma surrounding HIV. Magic Johnson was one of the first celebrities known to have HIV.
