Below are photographs featured in ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America of some of the many people — artists, writers, activists and ordinary Americans — that we lost far too soon. Click on their name to learn more.
The photographs of Juanita and Marquis are from the book Epitaphs for the Living: Words and Images in the Time of AIDS by Billy Howard (Southern Methodist University Press, 1989). In Febuary 1987, Howard began taking pictures of what were then known as Persons With AIDS (PWAs), and he invited each individual he photographed to write an accompanying statement.
