This afternoon at 12:30 p.m. EST, join ESSENCE and Alicia Keys for a live Twitter chat about HIV/AIDS in our community.
For one hour, the 14-time Grammy winner will answer questions about her work with HIV/AIDS and the numerous ways the disease has impacted African-American women as part of her Empowered campaign.
According to statistics, one in 36 Black women will be diagnosed with HIV in her lifetime. Keys will share how Black women can reduce their rate of infection. The superstar will also give advice to women who are nervous about discovering their own status, in addition to discussing why she's passionate about the topic.
