HIV/AIDS Education: Connecting to a New Generation

Teenage Girls Respond to HIV/AIDS Prevention book signing

Some suburban middle school teachers and librarians urged me to do it. I hadn’t thought of reaching out to the middle school population. But they said I would be missing a “grand opportunity” if I wasn’t reading excerpts of “Crooked Road Straight: The Awakening of AIDS Activist Linda Jordan” to middle school students.

“Middle school is about the time that girls began to experiment,” one teacher said.

I guess a lot has changed since I went to middle school. We didn’t talk much about sexual health back then. HIV-AIDS hadn’t yet made it a necessary topic.

My test group of eighth graders at Belizzi Middle School in Hartford nearly made me cry.

They were extraordinary listeners. That’s not to say that my other girls from the YWCA’s girls leadership program at Weaver and Windsor high schools, and the numerous adult book clubs weren’t equally as engaging.

The youngsters made me feel like I was connecting with a new generation.

Their curiosity gave me hope.

HIV-AIDS education is not dead.

I can’t wait for my next two workshops at Bulkeley High.

Can’t wait!!!
