AIDS activist Cleve Jones, creator of the Aids Memorial Quilt, will share his story at UNCW.
Jones began the quilt in 1987 as a tribute to those who lost their lives to the disease. What began as a single patch now contains more than 46,000 and weighs about 54 tons.
Experts are calling it a breakthrough for Africa in its effort to fight back against AIDS. Two studies in Africa have found that an AIDS drug that was already shown to help prevent the spread of the virus in gay men also works for heterosexual men and women.
