Off the Shelf: Author Talk with Dan Royles

Dan Royles discusses his book, “To Make the Wounded Whole: The African American Struggle Against HIV/AIDS”

“To Make the Wounded Whole” offers the first history of African American AIDS activism in all of its depth and breadth. Dan Royles introduces a diverse constellation of activists, including medical professionals, Black gay intellectuals, church pastors, Nation of Islam leaders, recovering drug users and Black feminists who pursued a wide array of grassroots approaches to slow the epidemic's spread and address its devastating impacts on African American communities. Through interlinked stories from Philadelphia and Atlanta to South Africa and back again, Royles documents the diverse, creative and global work of African American activists in the decades-long battle against HIV/AIDS.

Royles is assistant professor of history at Florida International University.

Hosted by Stacy Torian, Health Sciences Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University Libraries
