Every day, 152 people are infected with HIV — half of those diagnosed are black. Phill Wilson opens the film, ENDGAME: AIDS in Black America by revealing those shocking numbers about the disproportionate number of people afflicted with AIDS/HIV in the black community.

The two-hour film follows the lives of blacks who have been affected by the disease and how a lack of education, racism and economics continue to play a major part in the spread of HIV.

Produced by filmmaker Renata Simone, the powerful film uncovers the ugly truth about a modern plague in the black community.
