By empowering leaders in the fields of medicine, religion, sports, politics, business, academia, entertainment and civic organizations, BLACC members and supporters speak directly to our community to encourage sexual responsibility and keep HIV/STD prevention and treatment at the forefront of the national African-American agenda.
