the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), recognized each year on February 7th. NBHAAD is a national mobilization effort designed to encourage African-Americans across the United States and Territorial areas to get educated, get tested, get treated, and get involved with HIV/AIDS, as it continues to devastate Black communities. This year’s theme is “Prevention is Power.”

Sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day planners and organizers nationwide are committed to increasing awareness of this deadly disease. Confirmed celebrity spokespersons involved in this year’s campaign include: Tatyana Ali (Privileged, The Brothers, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air); Angela Bassett (Meet the Browns, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Waiting to Exhale); Dr. Creflo Dollar (founder of World Changers Church International); Tony Dungy (SuperBowl 2007 Champ and head coach of the Indianapolis Colts); Patti Labelle (renowned singer and entertainer); Angel Moore (ER); Sydney Poitier (Knight Rider series); General Colin Powell (former U.S. Secretary of State); Sheryl Lee Ralph (Moesha, Sister Act, To Sleep With Anger) Theresa Randle (State of Mind, Bad Boys I & II); Gina Ravera (The Great Debaters, The Closer, Soul Food); Tavis Smiley (world renowned speaker and author), and Tracie Thoms (Cold Case)
