Star Treks: Alicia in Africa

Alicia in Africa

When I heard about Alicia Keys’ initiative to spread awareness about the devastating AIDS epidemic in Africa through her documentary, Alicia in Africa: A Journey to the Motherland, I knew that I wanted to learn more about it. Alicia has also been instrumental in affecting change through her foundation Keep a Child Alive, which has been responsible for providing families and children with treatment and care in which they would otherwise be unable to afford.

The documentary chronicles Alicia’s month-long trip to Africa as she visits communities affected by HIV and AIDS. Directed by South African filmmaker Earle Sebastian, the real life stories of families in the film are both heartbreaking and inspiring.

It is a dream of mine to visit Africa, but it is a bigger dream that the pain and suffering caused by AIDS throughout this continent will cease. I commend Alicia for doing her part, and I have definitely been inspired to do mine.

Please share this video. Awareness is the first step toward change.

  5. Can I simply say what a relief to discover somebody who genuinely knows what they’re talking about online.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

  13. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.
