An Evening with Cleve Jones

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center presented An Evening with Cleve Jones on November 10, 2017 as part of the AIDS History Series.

Cleve Jones conceived the AIDS Memorial Quilt at a time when death from AIDS was shameful and hidden.  The 2017 ABC miniseries “When We Rise” was adapted from Mr. Jones’ book When We Rise:  My Life in the Movement.  His book and the miniseries chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, setbacks, and triumphs of the diverse LGBT activists who played integral roles in pioneering their leg of the US civil rights movement from its infancy.
