The epicenter of the AIDS epidemic in America is Atlanta and the southeast, and among the hardest hit populations are gay and bisexual black men. According to the CDC, half of them will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetimes if current trends continue. Pulitzer Center grantees William Brangham, Jon Cohen, and Jason Kane report on this topic in the second installment of their PBS NewsHour series "The End of AIDS?"
