Dirty Thirty

Here's a look at a new docu-series from Hannelore Williams that examines HIV & AIDS, 30 years after HIV was discovered. 

Titled Dirty 30, Williams says that she was, in part, motivated to create the series when she learned that, as a single black woman, she is statistically the most likely to contract the virus, while also being of the demographic least likely to receive treatment here in the USA, asserting that the HIV & Aids conversation has changed over the last 3 decades. 

Further, more from Williams...

In addition to health care and statistics, Dirty 30's aim is to shine a light on the psyche surrounding HIV and AIDS in the U.S. and abroad. "Dirty 30" will scrutinize how we deal with these diseases and what that says about culture and sexuality. The series will travel to various cities throughout the U.S., Johannesburg, and Paris to check out the clubs, the “Down Low”s, the Gays, Black women, families, children, single mothers, the infected, and those not infected, to try and paint a realistic landscape of HIV and AIDS today. Although each episode of "Dirty 30" will explore themes that can be measured in statistics, the series draws focus on themes in our behavior and ideals that can’t be measured in numbers.

Watch an extended preview of the series below; and underneath, you'll find a second clip featuring Alicia Keys, a prominent voice helping to shape the Dirty 30 docu-series, speaking on her own efforts to raise awareness about HIV & AIDS.

An actress, Hannelore Williams' resume includes appearances in CBS' Blue Bloods, and ABC's One Life To Live. She also teaches "Acting for the Camera" at NYU's Tisch School for the Arts, and has created three web series, one of them previously featured in S&A - Queen Hussy, which was directed by Pete Chatmon.
