Memphis, TN – African-American women are now at greatest risk of contracting HIV. As we heard last week from the folks on the frontlines, many are pointing to the jails where a disproportionate number of African American men cycle through.
Most African-American women who've contracted HIV have gotten it from having unprotected sex with an infected male.
Very few prisons have mandatory HIV testing upon arrival or release, making it difficult to get a handle on the problem.
Memphis, TN – To live in Memphis, you have to have a car. At least that's what most Memphis drivers say. But what if you don't have one? Chances are you ride the bus, walk, or take your bike to get everywhere you need to go. Next week, the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization holds a series of public workshops, intended to let citizens have a hand in the future of citywide transportation.
