AIDS on TV: Journalism, Medicine, Government, and Prejudice
In conjunction with the exhibition Art after Stonewall, 1969–1989
In 1983, television producer and journalist Joseph Lovett successfully pleaded with ABC’s 20/20 executives to create the first investigative reports on AIDS for network TV. He will show selected video clips (50 min.) and discuss the responsibility and the difficulties of reporting on a plague during a decade of discrimination.
